... pain in my arms and legs. I also have vericose veins popping up on my legs. I recently read up on this medication and apparently these are some or the serious side effects. I know it says if you are 35 and a smoker then don't take it; well, I'm almost 35, but haven't smoked in 10 yrs. I'm going to make an appt. with a Dr., but just thought I'd try to get some feedback on here
