Response to: Answer all this?
Apr 21, 2006

I had similar ploblems for several weeks on the same regimen. What worked for me was to eat something slightly greasy right before taking my meds - a couple of "microwave & eat" sausages, an egg, sometimes even a hot dog... Never had a problem since. Not sure why..... When I started, I used to eat a couple of outmeal breakfast bars and a yogurt, sometimes some fruit - with a big glass of milk or OJ, and the same symptoms began and were getting much worse all the time. I finally figured it out when traveling - nothing to eat handy so I went to McD's and ordered an egg mcmuffin (yuk!) - that was my first day of feeling normal for about 6 weeks! Months later it still works. NO problems now. Just thought I'd share. Hope it helps.
