THE TASTE - HOR-RI-BLE! You do see symptoms going away rather quickly but that taste and the lasting after-taste can make you ill. Just thinking about taking it makes me sick. GELS/CREAMS will have to do if it happens again

It worked, but it was horrible to take. The taste is awful and it's hard to get down. I agree there has to be something better!

Within 2 days of taking it i had an upset stomach. I noticed it was working but i had to change to a different type of medicine because i couldnt take it without being sick to my stomach.

I agree with all the other postings. There has got to be an easier way! This is like the third time over the years I have had to use this prescription and it gets harder. THERE HAS got to be an easier way. I will ask for Metrogel should I find myself with this condition again.

This stuff has made me sick as a dog! If you are nauseous before you start taking it, i don't recommend taking this! I almost passed out twice! If the Dr tells you to take 2 to start off with and 2 more the next time if you can stomach it, trust me start off with one, then if you stomached one ok, move up to 2.
