Took this for a sinus infection due to allergies, vocal chord swelling that didn't respond to Keflex. Really helped me a lot. Some side effects I had were: trouble sleeping, a bit moody, energy, felt hot, increase in hunger, no food tasted normal

Prescribed for occipital neuralgia. Side effects worse than condition. Jitters, headaches, dizziness, leg cramps, and loss of composure.

I have bulging discs in my back, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. This medication has been a miracle. I started on it and have had steady energy, able to get projects done that I haven't had the energy or attitude to take on in a long time. I am fighting for a chance to be left on it longer so I can keep going. There have been some side effects, but I just lowered my dose and tried to get by on less. Right now, I take l/4 of a pill (Dex pak 13 day 1.5 mg) every 12 hours or so and it's working great. I tried switching to generic 1 mg pills, but found it's not working over the past week and I got really, really tired and had to rest a lot. The challenge is going to be the taper off of it. It is a potent medication.

Has dramatically improved my back pain caused by a herniated disc, however side effects are almost too much to handle. PROFUSE sweating, leg cramps at night, no sleep, a constant feeling of anxiety and agitation.

I was diagnosed with a sinus infection and bronchitis, but my doctor wanted to treat it like it was a walking pneumonia. I have to say I feel 1000x better than before..however the side effects are outrageous (sp?). My whole body is as solid as a rock, swollen up twice my normal size. Moodswings every 30 minutes. I eat like a football player....I recommend this medicine for someone who has been EXTREMELY sick and needs to gain weight back....never again will I take this medicine due to the fact that it puts me in a weird mood and makes me eat like there is no tomorrow.
