    My first week on 140mg twice a day, I experienced flushing on my face, neck and arms which happened about 3 hrs after taking the medication and lasted for a little over an hour, when I started taking 280 mg per day the stomach issues started with force, cramping bloating, nausea, stomach pain. Then vomiting. Quit taking until I have a chance to speak to my Dr.
