started this med 3 wks. ago for neuropathic pain and headaches. Titrated dosage up to 3 pills daily. pain is gone, however, attitude and mood swings are a problem, along with dry mouth and blurred vision. I will continue for a while longer to see if these side affects lessen with time. The relief from the pain is great.

Comment:
I was put on this medication for abdominal discomfort that would not be relieved by any other medication. Simply stated...a nervous stomach. Also, irritable bowel. It has been a life saver for me. I have no further problems...for the most part. I was having so many problems with gas, bloating and stomach discomfort. All of these symptoms are gone.
