    After taking one pill, I experienced severe dizziness and nausea. I couldn't keep anything in my stomach. I vomited several times and had to go lay down and take a nap. Once I woke up, I felt a bit better. I also experienced excessive sweating. I woke take this medicine. I'll just chew gum and deal with dry mouth.

I did not know the cause since I took other medicines and had to take the time for the process of elimination by switching my other medicines.
