Chartreux, I took the first pill and at the 15 minute mark, I started feeling really bad, my heart rate and breathing changed. I am being started out on 25mgX daily. I could only get the first pill in me since I was so grogged out, I forgot to take the rest of my meds the first several days.
yup, I am not going to continue taking it since I looked down in the bathroom and saw how swollen my knees are. My doc has me taking it for my RA and possible Fibro. I was going to try going down slowly by a half pill but can't do that with the capsules(oop). Soo, my Ma suggested I increase the time between one pill. Holy Cow, the pain it's causing with the stomach cramp and back spasms. I think I'll just tough out the RA pain until I cannot take it anymore. I'm so not a fan of drugs but realize now that I have to take them or end up in a fetal position under my bed.
Thank You and Thank you Vitaka for the input.
I will call my doc about it. I am hesitant since I have developed a weird fear of letting them down about my not tolerating the drugs they've tried to put me on. It's like they get annoyed at me and it makes me feel like I am a slacker or something. Is that weird?
