I had high hopes thi ... Show Full Comment

In addition, before meals I get very dizzy and sick to my stomach. I ha ... Show Full Comment

Knowing these side-effects are typical is very helpful. I find peppermint hard candy has been helpful both for the nausea and the metallic taste side effects and gin ... Show Full Comment
