Just wondering if anyone else had less side effects from the Preservative Free Injection than the Regular Solution?  I do the weekly injection and this weekend's injection was my first with the Preservative Free Solution - man what a difference, no nausea - hungover feeling and just a mild headache, plus no 2nd day nausea - usually I have nausea that lasts for about 3 days and a headache that works itself into almost a migraine and it tends to last for almost 2-3 days.
I am just curious if anyone else has experienced it - I have no idea if the pills come in a Preservative or Preservative Free version.  I guess I have to wonder what is it that they put into the Preservatives.... rolleyes
