Advice & Tips: after doing my own research once I recovered from my 2 trips to the emergency room, i found this medication is contraindicated for people who suffer from hypothyroidism. Also there can be sever interactions with medications such as Cymbalta, Savella, and Vyvase which i currently take all 3. I ended up having such a sever rection that i was 4point restrained to a bed and given multiple doses of attivan.
