I took it with food, but coughed on and off for 3 hours and vomited twice. I was lightheaded and lost my appetite. I had this HORRIBLE and overwhelming metallic taste in my mouth even for two days after I discontinued. I went through an entire box of peppermint tea w ... Show Full Comment

I am on day 4 of my medicine, and I have been miserable. Even though the medication seems to be working for clearing it up, I feel so sick, I haven't eaten barely anything in 3 days... My stomach has been really upset even though I make sure that I eat when I take the medicine.. I've had diarrea. I haven't slept in 2 nights.. What a way to lose a few pounds.. lol.
