    Side Effects

    My mouth is very dry. My eyes water when I am not well hydrated. I have diarrhea several times every day. Stool leakage is a big problem with the diarrhea. I have extreme flatulence which can be very embarrassing everywhere. Work is the hardest. My hair has thinned a lot but I am lucky to still have hair.
