Druginformer Identified Side Effects: Fine motor delay, Fatigue, Feeling drunk, Apathy

Effectiveness Rating:     Overall Rating:

Posted By Samantha on March 15, 2019 @ 9:01 pm

I’ve noticed fine motor skills like typing, and hand writing, were more difficult. I would be typing and it is as if my fingers are two words behind everything else – like a really slow computer. Otherwise I felt very disassociated during the first week, and the first week after increasing dosages (tapered from 100mg 3 x a day to 300mg 3 x day over three months). It was useful for endometriosis related pain. The effects on pain were enough to make me really persist. Side effects are worst 12 – 72 hours after starting / increasing dosage. After three weeks on 300 x 3 times a day the lingering tiredness had passed and I had started to feel more like my normal self again.

As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
