This medicine works well if you can get passed the side effects. For me even taking this medicine with a meal made me nauseated.

for me, i am at my wit's end and nothing on the planet works, so even though this medicine makes me dizzy and feel jittery like on too much coffee, it does work and seems to be my only option
