Been taking this med for 1 month now.Started off fine but now that I am on the 240 mg. twice a day, I'm not sure.

I have to talk to my doctor about it.

I love having to only take a pill instead of shot. I love that I dont have any sideffect form the medication, very well tolorated.. ONly issue is every once in awhile I have an allergic reaction to it and I take a benadryl and that takes care of it as fast as it came on..
