Yes, I did not take it this morning - going to now with dinner. I stopped at my gastro doc (near the knee surgeon) and talked to the nurse. She said continue to take it at night until I see doc March 16th. Of course, I had planned on that unless I got worse side effects. Felt ok today. Seems my vision is being affected and I really can't afford that one since I have cornea transplants/disease and limited vision anyway.
Well, as far as the knee surgeon visit - I will start another thread with some questions - nothing very medical exactly - more like looking for experience and support. He is very nice, very experienced and wants me to have the knees done NOW!
