    I took this drug for two weeks, My feet and legs hurt so bad I could hardly stand on them and my job requires me to stand. I quit it after 2 weeks and the leg pain stopped the next day but I have developed an irregular heat beat. Now I will have to have treatment for this. I do not recomend this drug. The health problems it causes only adds to the original problem.
