I have been on this drug for almost 3 weeks. While I have had decreased pain, it has made me very sick. I have constant nauseau. I have lost 12 pounds due to being unable to eat. I have dizziness and the cold chills are horrible. I have agreed to try this for 2 more weeks and if things don't subside, I am getting back off. This has been an awful experience.

Comment:
I have just begun this treatment and I am intrested in more information on this new drug. I have had alot of pain because of the low dosage due to having to build up to full strength.

I also have headaches again, another side effect,I am hoping ... Show Full Comment
