Hi, I am sorry, but before I answer I must be 100% sure, if not I do not answer the question, health issues are not a game for me ( I am no saying you think that of me). I checked when I answered, and rechecked again now.-

The following is this site I checked first (it is drugs.com) , then another 2 so I do not know what is wrong... Contavt your doctor ASAP.-
