    I started this medication about two weeks ago. I havent weighed myself again...but the first week I lost 7 lbs. ONly the first day I got real figgety and my heart was raising. I do have dry mouth. But i have been having dizzines and blurred vision.Was having trouble seeing the screen at work and reading b/c of this. Am not 100% sure this is related to the med, but most likely.

The cost was grea ... Show Full Comment
