I have an PE at the moment which my doctor put me on this drug for.I found it easy to use but i didn't like all the potential problems that i found out it can cause.The only reason i agreed to be on it is because i was told this is the most effective medicine of it's kind on the market and hopefully i won't have to be on it for long.

The side effects of this medicine is often overlooked. Everyone is quick to say how wonderful the medicine is, but no one takes the time to explain the side effects.
