    I took this medication for 11 days and experienced extreme heart palpatations which resulted in a thorough cardiac makeover. I have never ever had heart problems before taking this drug. Use this medicatin with extreme caution.

    This drug has made all the difference in the world for the pain in my feet. I do experience some memory problems and weight gain, but my feet were hurting so bad I can deal with the side effects for now. I love it.

    I've had fibromyalgia for 5 years. I got excited when I heard of it in hope of relief. All it has done is make me gain weight. I wish I had never heard of it.

    Comment:
    This drug has a drowsy feeling and clearly interferes with cognition per the frontal lobes. I find my self looking for things more or forgetting things. Although the drug is very good for my pain-I don't take drugs but due to a two week chronic episode of Fibro pain, I surrendered.
