i dont have an answer for you but i just recently began taking it myself only my doctor has me take it at bedtime so i might be asleep during those side effects. i will try it in the mornings a few times and see if i get them and let you know. i take loads of other meds for other problems and they knock me out at night. oh, and im about the same age as your husband i am 52. wow quad bypass at 35? i will keep you in my prayers. you should try using the option of asking this question and opening up a conversation instead of a direct answer. youll get more responses because our friends see the questions we look at.
