I was only on this medecation for 3 days because the dr. had given me a shot of Pen. when I was in his office, but after taking it I became very jittery, had nausea, stomach pains, was dizzy, and my blood pressure went very high. This medication could be very dangerous for some people.

After 30 mins of taking the first dose, I was a nervous wreck. I was dizzy, lethargic, and sick to my stomach. This stuff does something to your mind, I don't feel like myself at all. I am up to day 4 and will not continue after today. The FDA should double check this one!
