I have to take 21 pills over six days. Since I have started taking this medicine, I have not been able to sleep, I have constant headache, dizziness, excess urination whole night. Doctor gave it to me for "ringing in my ear". Does not seem to have any effect.

Comment:
seems to be a consensus of reactions. going on 3rd day of progressive pack. within 1 day my heart palpitates, disturbed sleep and jittery as other commenters noted. Ortho put me on for what we think is severe lower back muscle sprainon left side. My back is a titch better since injury 7 days ago but i've read it can take 6 weeks. I'll see how next day goes.
