Went from almost no symptoms of my colon disease to diarrhea, back pain to almost unbearable back pain. Took this drug about 8 years ago under the care of another doctor in Lexington, Ky. I had to discontinue because of the side effects. New doctor treated me last month and wanted to try it again, worse side effects this time around.
