Thank for all the info everyone. So far I feel a million times better. Just hoping I'm gonna be one of the lucky ones who doesn't get the side effects.
I appreciate all the support
I didn't have most the side effects...in fact I kept losing weight. Never had the moon face either. The only thing I had was the heart palpitations and the irritability. Glad you are feeling better....happy upcoming wedding day!
