I wish my rheum. had told me how awful this drug really is. Getting off after just 75mg per day for last 3 months has been total hell!!!! DO NOT EVER take this drug, even tapering off the past 2 weeks under medical advisement, the side effects are terrible, u feel sooo nauseated, weak, dizzy lightheaded!!I hope i feel normal again someday.
