When I took this drug my joints and muscles hurt so bad I could barely move. I found it difficult to get out of bed because I was exhusted when I woke in the morning. My doctor would lower my dose, things would get a bit better but I still couldn't fully participate in my life. I decided to change doctors, he changed my drug and dosage and I am much better now.

I have been on this medication for a little over a month..I have been able to sleep better. I now have a problem with my taste buds. I can't taste the flavor of foods but I can taste the sweetness. no more day and night sweats. did have some heart palps but that recently stopped a few days ago. checking with Dr on the taste buds and minor leg cramps.
