    I took this medication for five days. At first, I noticed mild indigestion and some fatigue. I also had decreased appetite. On the fourth day, I noticed I was feeling more tired and "out of it." By the next morning, I had to pull over and call paramedics because I couldn't drive, felt confused and dizzy, and was afraid I was going to pass out. My doctor looked at me like he coul ...

I am extremely concerned with all the side affects that comes with this medication. Although ... Show Full Comment

I almost fainted while driving. It has been 3 weeks since I have discontinued this med but still am expriencing mo ... Show Full Comment
