I just started taking it 2wks ago. Still trying to feel it out. Having a hard time sleeping while on it even when taking ambien. Trying to give my body time to get used to it but I NEED SLEEP so have been thinking about stopping it

Yes when I was first diagnosed, to me it was my miracle drug I was on it for the first five years but all good things come to an end. Got up to the highest dose, then my body just got used to it and stopped working. But I give it a thumbs up. But there's where your weight gain comes in.

I took it and it kicked in in about 8 weeks (along with Cym Gen) Worked like a charm! But only for a month and a half until I flared up again.... I'm still on it but it doesn't seem to be doing anything.
Side effects include making me extremely clumsy and forgetful!

I've taken it several yrs ago and it really helpled. Had to get off because it was so expensive with my ins at the time. Just recently went back on it with change of ins. Its been about a mth now and feel like it helps. I'm just gaining so much weight. Hope this helps. Hang in there!
