In fact I don't start to feel better until about Thursday. I have to admit that I wanted to give it every chance...but at my Dr. appt. this week...I'll be asking for another option for treatment. And by reading all these commen ... Show Full Comment

About 18 hours after taking first pill I experienced severe muscle and joint pain from my neck to my hips. I spent 2 days in bed taking pain medicine. I also had tightness of the chest when I was in a flat or reclined position. Today is day 4 and I am finally starting to feel better. The symptoms were flu like at first and I would put the pain at an 8. I will never take this medicine again.
