After taking my first daily dose (150mg BID), I developed severe itching and redness of skin on my arms, neck and back. Since this occured on a week-end, I have not been able to contact my cardiologist for further instructions. Meanwhile,I am holding future doses.

don't know if it is working so my answer above (effectiveness) is only a guess. the toughest side effect is the difficult heart burn and acid reflex. it can last for over 24 hours. i noticed it happens more at night after i go to bed after i take a pill especially if i don't drink a quart of water. anybody else having similar problem?
