I Thought I Was Handling It Well! Weight Loss Was A Problem But Back Then They Did Not Tell You about The Gum & Teeth Side Affect! well After I Had To Have My Teeth Bonded As They were getting Loose I Finally Had To Have Full Implants put in! watch Your Teeth As I Lost All Mine! I'm Hoping The Drug Has No New Surprises For Me! smhair

I've taken it for 20 years now, no problems that I am aware of. Gingival Hyperplasia is one reported effect, and I've had slight problems with it, but I keep the teeth clean now, floss and brush, everyday (just before bed) and no problems in years.

Wish you well, and welcome to the forum.
