  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: I began having pain in my lower abdoman a few weeks after starting this med. I lived with pain so bad that sometimes I had to stop the car on my way home from work. I'd just sit there and cry. Sometimes I would walk to my car at work, holding my lower abdoman from the terrible pain. The commercials say, "May cause abdominal pain." They have no clue...
