You need to report this side effect to the company and your subs doctor. I hate you are having such a bad time, but, if you will report it, you may prevent others from this dilemma. I did read the film is 30 % stronger, you were so smart to cut it in half, that should allow you to go back on the pills. I think the company was trying to help those who hate the taste and those who are first inducted when it can take 15 minutes to start dissolving the pill. If you are sweating so much more profusely, make sure you drink a bit of gatorade per day, as you sweat out , and that should help a bit with the extra soreness you had. Thank you for posting this, I am sure you gave people reason to think about switching to the pills. They will probably go generic with the subs pills soon since they got the film out there, that way they have an option for those who can't afford the film. Pattishan
