Are these side effects normal and will they subside?

Hi, i agree with the others, just wanted to add, OTC treatments for diarrhoea/gas/upset stomachs can be used in the mean time as long as you make sure with the pharmacist or your doctor. But generally very safe. Try to stay hydrated also until these symptoms subside.

Yep, normal and will subside.

Yes, it's a hard change on the body. If it doesn't subside in 3-4 days, call your Dr. Hope this helps.
