Since getting this drug I feel so much better. Easy to take too, though if you miss a dose you will feel it.

I have to say that this drug has saved my life. I do have some side effects, GERD, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, but considering I was diagonosed 40 years ago, I consider it a miracle that I am still alive. Trick to keeping weight down........tons of fiber and water. In 40 years I have only had a net gain of 20 lbs.

I have addisons disease & Celiac disease. This medication has cut back on my Emergency room visits. I am very upset & disappointed over the 70 lb wieght gain over a 2 1/2 yr of trmt. I wish there was something that works minus the weight gain. I think at some point i am going to pop! & when does the weight gain stop? The dr. says atleast my levels are better. =/ that'd be true ... Show Full Comment
