I started this med a week ago and have had more side effects than with any other I've tried. I've been nauseaed for most of the day every day, had extreme sweats, dizziness, insomnia (with use of med I've been taking for two years), increased depression. I hope to see a big change if I can finish the titration, but I'm very doubtful at this time.

Comment:
I have been on this drug for almost 3 weeks. While I have had decreased pain, it has made me very sick. I have constant nauseau. I have lost 12 pounds due to being unable to eat. I have dizziness and the cold chills are horrible. I have agreed to try this for 2 more weeks and if things don't subside, I am getting back off. This has been an awful experience.
