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

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.
