I had no problem with VIVOTIF BERNA except that it is not covered under Medicare Plan D because this is not an FDA approved drug. Check with your provider before taking this drug.

Comment:
I took the first pill and felt fine. The second pill caused me to have odd dreams. The third pill gave me insomnia. I am feeling ill this morning as well. I will be glad when the last pill is gone. I think my son has some insomnia as well. My daughter, a bit younger, coughs quite a bit and gets stuffy after taking the pill. I am going to try taking the 4th pill in the morning.
