Since I have been on this medication I am very dizzy blurred vision headaches and feet numbness and tingling. Been taking it for aboutfour months. Notice symptoms last couple of weeks. I am going to take myself off to see if this medication is the problem. When taking several meds you have to figure out which is the problem. Plus hair loss also.
