Advice & Tips:
I have never had a seizure in my entire life. About 45 minutes after taking my very first dose I felt very sick and exhausted. I layed down and took a two hour nap. When I awoke my heart beat was 144 beats per minute. I freaked out and called my friend who told me to try and relax and over a few hours my heart rate went back to normal. However, in the morning I woke up and went to the doctor's for an appointment and while waiting in the lobby I had a Grand Mal seizure and fell on my face. I bit my lip so hard I had to get stitches. It looked like someone cut it with a pair of scissors. I have a nice scar from it. I had tests done and was in the hospital for three days. I still don't know everything, but if you have ever had a seizure I would NOT take this medication, or if they run in the family or anything like that. If you have side effects like I did I would go to a hospital or have someone keep an eye on you for the next day and don't drive. Maybe it is an unlikely side effect or maybe something else, but there is a warning not to take it if you have ever had or have seizures.
