WAS PRESCRIBED THIS MED FOR IBS, CROHNS & CELIACS. LANDED IN THE ER, WITH HALLUCINATIONS, NIGHT TERRORS, PERFUSE SWEATING, COULDNT CONCENTRATE, ENDLESS LIST. MAKE SURE YOUR DR EXPLAINS THOROUGHLY THE SIDE EFFECTS BEFORE TAKING. THIS DRUG MADE ME LOSE 12 WEEKS OF MY LIFE.

Watching my son go through a losing, horrific battle with ALS caused an inability to sleep. (My mom passed away exactly a year later.) Trying to focus at work was impossible.

Comment:
I was prescribed this medicine for Fibromyalgia and Chronic fatigue syndrome. It hasn't done much at all for my Fibro, but it has helped my CFS so much!
