    Mild (drug interactions)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Advice & Tips: Very effective. I ended in the hospital with chest pain they told me it was reflux. Neurologist tells me I can't take this with my anti seizure drugs that they have just put out information that there is an interaction. GI dr. wanted to increase me to 3 per day. Can't they get their info together, and prevent my diseases from worsening Overall, I think it's hard to get all the dr's to agree on 1 course of action
