    Since I began taking this medication( 3rd week) I have tingling in my hands and feet (did not have prior to use) My balance improves some. I'm wondering if the strength is too strong? Discussed with my pharmacist and she encouraged me to continue for 30 days. Then consult my doctor if symptoms do not subside.
