I have been taking this med for 2 1/2 months now, and was just taken off of it.

My Dr.'s want to try Lasix coupled with spinal taps next.

I have been taking this medicine for only a week and a half and I have been fine! My back hurt the 1st few days but that went away! I have not had blurry vision or headaches so I'm happy! Also I used to drink 8 cans of Mt Dew a day and within 2 hours of taking my 1st pill it gave my dew the absolute most disgusting taste imaginable! So it helped me do something long overdue! No longer a soda ... Show Full Comment
