    Hi Jacqueline - I am on day 7 of 20 mg and today my legs feel very shaky and weak. I am calling my doctor today to see if I should be on a lower dose because the side effects have been brutal for me. Took Flu in the past with no problem whatsoever so I don't know why this is happening to me now sad

      I called my doctor's office and talked to the nurse about all my side effects. She said everything I have been experiencing is common, so I guess that makes me feel somewhat better. She's going to let the doctor know but I really don't know if he will want to lower my dose, he said he didn't think the 10 would be strong enough for me neutral

      I honestly did not even know the liquid form existed until I saw it on here. I guess 20-40mg is a "standard" dose but everyone is different. My doctor told me to give it another week or so and then he'll lower my dose if I want to.

      Just saw this response. Yes that is pretty much what they said lol. Doctor didn't remind me about possible side effects because he "didn't think it would be a problem" for me. Honestly when I woke up with funny legs this morning that scared me a lot and made me think what else could I possibly have to go strange!
