YaY! So happy to read of Slim beginning MDV3100! My husband has been on it for a week now with almost no SEs. Maybe a little constitpation to begin with but that's pretty much it. He also had some very minor lower back pain which we don't think is connected because he has had it before.
So so far so good!
Do you have to write down each time he takes his pills? And bring back his pill bottle next visit?
I'm glad he's on it. Is your next visit in 4 weeks? We go back Aug. 16.
(I'm not sure they said that to us but we know it. Our feeling is if MDV3100 can give him a good run then another good drug will be ready for him for another good run. If this beast can be managed, we would be happy and consider it a chronic disease like diabetes which I have. And then who knows down the road in the future a cure...........)
