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.

If you experience the discomfort at the begining, work through it. Your doctor should be able to give you some tips to get through it. Once I got through the initial period, I have no side effects.
