side effects of pravastatin?
And yes Diarrhea is a s.effect
DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS HYDRATE YOURSELF, FOR YOU ARE LOOSING A SIGNIFCANT AMOUNT OF LIQUID. TRY ALSO COCA-COLA CAFFEINE FREE BECAUSE YOU HAVE LOST A LOT OF GLUCOSE (SUGAR) GO FOR THE REGULAR ONE ( I DO NOT LIVE IN THE STATES, THEREFORE I DO NOT KNOW IF THEY HAVE REGULAR COKE W/OUT CAFFEINE IF THEY DO NOT JUST GET THE REGULAR ONE... NO DIET ONES... OK..YOU NEED SUGAR AND IT WILL GET YOUR SUGAR LEVELS UP AGAIN... FROM MY EXPERIENCE, AND IT IS AN INEXPENSIVE SOLUTION... IN THE MEANTIME DO NOT DRINK TOO MUCH COKE THOUHG... MY GRANFATHER IS A DOCTOR AND HAS RECOMMEND THIS FOR ME WHEN I HAVE HAD THE RUNS AS YOU SAY IN THE STATES)
I recommend you contact your Doctor ASAP, from a caring individual.
What concerns me is why after taking it for so long, now you are experiencing this s. effet? I recommend you contact your Doctor ASAP, this is my personal opinion, this should not be happening after 3 months.
