My doctor starting me on this medicine after I had been hosptialized with a blood clot in my leg.<br>The leaflet that they gave with the medicine was not very informative.<br>I didn't know that it was used to help with leg pains.<br><br>But I did find out the hard way that It will cause increased heartrate and chest pains and that a side affect that do occur that aren't mentioned are exess blotting, stomach pains, heartracing, chest pains, neverous jitters, not being able to stay still and a feeling of jumping out of your skin.<br><br>I had these reactions after being on this medicine for a week. We know it was this medicine because it was the only new medicine I was put on.<br><br>I had to make an unscheduled Dr's appointment to get medicine to counter these side affects so I could function again.<br><br>Although it did stop the leg pains all these unwanted side effects in my oppion makes it useless and it cost over $100 for a 30 day supply which was a waste of money for me.<br><br>I feel there needs to be more research into this medicine before any more people suffer even worse side affect that this.<br><br><br>
