hi browns1, I was that drug and could only handle it for a month and a half.eating only once a day and drinking 4 cups of coffee is not a sign of good health.the shaking hands is probably from all that caffeine.and it will kill your appetite.start cutting down on that stuff.the drug your taking should be taken with food. it made my fingers and feet tingle and start to turn yellow.i got a blood test and it was not any kind of hepatitis.that medication is hard on your liver.i changed to motrin 800mg 2 of them 3 times a day.but cut it down to 1-3x a day. but im on suboxone now too for pain management. good luck and talk to your doc and tell him about your appetite and coffee drinking.subzero58
