    I have been on that medication for a month now and the side effects are horrible. I have stayed tired, kept headaches, a metallic taste in my mouth, decreased appetite, soft stools. It's totally messes up your GI track. Make sure to eat yogurt in the morning like activia and take a probiotic at night and continue to do that for 3 months after coming off of the medication.
