    I think the biggest side effect i get is tiredness - i sometimes feel a bit nauseous too but not very often

    Hey there, I’ve been on it since January and take it at night so that I don’t experience the tiredness and then in the morning I feel absolutely fine. It’s a great medicine for me and I hope it’ll be the same for you

    I was only on it for a couple weeks but found it made me horribly nauseous, couldn't keep food down

    when i started it around 18 years ago or so i ended up changing doses a lot so if your having any major side affects talk to your consultant!
