    My son had headache and cramping with the first dose. He had these and explosive diarrhea with the second dose. He has missed a day and a half of school. Third dose is tomorrow morning. We are not looking forward to it.

    Within two hours of the first dose I was nauseated and cramping. A few hours after that, I started having explosive liquid diarrhea. Malaise, fever, and continued cramping have made it impossible for me to work this week. I hope that it's all worth it...

    Myalgias and slight fatigue after third dose. Significant stomach ache for 12 hours so far, and fatigue after the fourth dose. I hope this means it is working. I don't think I'd take the oral vaccine again. I wonder about the accuracy of the reported incidence of side effects by the manufacturer.

    Taking this in anticipation of my trip to Africa. Taking it on an empty stomach is a little difficult, but not terrible. And so grateful for the other reviews - couldn't figure out why I was so exhausted! Good to know it's just the vaccine. A little queasy, too, but nothing outrageous.

    Agree with other reviews but did not put it together until after the last dose. I had diahhrea after each dose, lack of appetite and increased need for sleep. Severe stomach cramps with the last dose.
