Side Effects
I've been off this drug for almost a month and still have major side effects. I only took it for 2 weeks. My feces is just like acid on my rectum burns beyond belief at the least 6 to 10 times a day. The only relief I get is by jumping into the shower and washing as fast as I can then the burning stops. So I've been taking many showers a day for weeks. Its the worst month I've spent in my life and its not over yet. I wish I could find out how long this will last. My Dr. said he has never heard of anything like that.

Side Effects
6 days after starting i developed high fever,chills,freezing cold,muscles aches and weakness. 2 days later after i stopped taking the meds i developed hives all over my body,severe trembeling and i ended up in the ER cause i thought i was going to die. I had high blood pressure and was seen immediately. I was given oxegen and 4 painful injections to stop the allergic reaction. I was poked to start an IV but the Dr. decided the medicine was working so i didnt need it after all. I was dischared with the diagnosis of Anaphylactic Urticaria and Allergic Urticaria and got a perscription for Nexium because the shots i was given there is going to cause acid reflux. I woke up this morning and the hives came back across my face and chest and my fever is back.
