Thank you so much, Kelly and Karen. I did phone our pharmacist late yesterday afternoon. He agreed that my symptoms are exactly some of those described in the pamphlet I got with the drug. I did read the whole thing before taking a pill, but incorrectly assumed I wouldn't be bothered by any of them. Wrong!
My cousin comes from Ottawa once a year to see friends and relatives, and yesterday she stayed with us for the evening and overnight. We are both only children and have been more like sisters than cousins. I should have waited until tonight to start the new med, but being overly optimistic, thought it might make our visit more enjoyable for both of us if I was relatively pain - free. Wrong again.
This morning I feel better than I did yesterday so maybe the side effects will subside. If not, Plan B which involves taking only one capsule per day will be next.
Has anyone who tried this drug had kind of a "space-cadet" feeling? I feel like I'm here, but not all here mentally .
