    Dear Dove

    It usually takes 4 to 8 weeks before these meds kick in....you are in your second month...so hang in there it should kick in soon.....We are all different.....It took me just a little over 8 weeks (over two months) before I noticed I was feeling better.

    Let us know how it goes....don't be scared....we are here for you

    Hi Dove,

    I am sorry to hear to you've been having problems with the Tabs, me too...

    I am only on day 7, and to-day I was out and felt the same as you, but as Lee says it will get better.

    Take care x

    p.s have you had any good days?

    Hi Dove,

    Have you talked to your doc about this? If your body can't handle the pills then your doc could switch you to a different kind of pill that works the same but is easier on your tummy. Every body is different and our reactions to Meds are too.

    I hope u find something that works for u.

    Hi Dove,

    Make sure you take the pills with food. I had the same experience. I was having the worst diarrhea of my life, so I decided to go off the meds for a couple weeks, and get my tummy back in shape. Ate lots of yogurt and sauerkraut. Then went back on the meds, drinking kefir when I take my meds. No more diarrhea! In fact, now I have the opposite problem--constipation, which after two weeks began to wane.

    If the food doesn't help, ask your doc for different med.
