The taste in your mouth is bad enough - but a migraine on ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I honestly don't understand all the negative reviews for this drug. I've been taking it for 3 solid days and have had no side effects whatsoever. I'm taking 500 mg (one pill twice a day) and usually take them after a meal. I haven't had any issues with nausea, dizziness or diarrhea.
