    I have what seems EVERY side effect it warns about. Yes I am miserable but the alternative is a shunt in my head. Did a LP(lumbar puncture) but its a band aid fix.

    this is my second time in my life I've been on it. I get really sick everyday and it's hard to keep up with some daily tasks. It's hard on my body and I used to be told I was allergic to it but my doctors wanted to try it again.

    I have been on this medication for over 10 years. There are many side affects which are in no way worse than the condition. I will gladly deal with the tingling of hands, feet, knees, etc. Even the change in the way foods taste is worth it. I am much better off taking the medication.
