The good and the bad effects vary greatly for me. When I take the 100 mg long after a meal I get good effects. Just after a big meal no so good just like they say. The pill seems to work fairly quickly and its not a problem. In fact I like the pill days.
The bad effects are that I can get a slight headache, flush feeling in my face, stuffy nose but these dont last long at all. Sometimes I seem to have gotton back and pelvis pain that last for a while. That seems to be less as of the last couple of months.
I truly feel like I am still healing and getting better even at 9 months maybe I'm crazy but it feels like it.
One thing I will stress is that, I screwed this up, take the pill when your told during your initial recovery. I would take mine when I would expect to have sex and then it wouldnt happen for one reason or another . If your told to take it every other day do so. It helps the healing process for that I am sure.
