It made me nauseous, my arms and legs right down to my digits would tingle. I often times felt like blacking out and would have to sleep it off.

The side effects suck. There's no getting past that. I bitter and resentful all the time. My hands and feet and face tingle all the time. My eyes are constantly twitching. The dry mouth is unfortunate, too. However, it has helped decrease the pressure in my eyes :) I think all the of the above is a small price to pay for one's eyesight.
