I have had severe nausea and dizzyness, plus trouble sleeping at night. I am cutting back to one pill for a short while to see if my body will adjust and then I will go back to two. I also thought about ginger camsules or candied ginger to help with the nausea. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I do not take this medication , but you are experiencing common side effects from it, do let your Dr. know, hear what he / she has to say about it, perhaps as you say you need a dose adjustment.
