Been taking for 3 months. Have any of these side effects been reported? I have been experiencing severe night sweats about 3 times a week,which started about 3 weeks ago, where I wake up soaking wet, with wet bed sheets, etc. I feel very tense and my muscles hurt afterwards. Not sure if my body is tensing or if possibly I am having a seizure during these moments. Last night I was awoken in the midst of a night terror where I was being attacked by dark objects. Woke up to find myself saturated in sweat, tense, weak. Ilene Katz
Looking up the medication and it's side effects, if you did not have hypertension, edema and night sweats, then you are having a very bad reaction with that medication and need to report this to your doctor ASAP or go to the nearest ER. These are server side effect and should not be ignored and if this has been going on for any length of time could turn life treating.
