Take after meal: This med should be taken after your meal..Don't take it before as it can cause nausea and stomach upset etc...Also, you may need to take a smaller dose for a few days until your body gets adjusted to it. You may also ask your doc for an extended-release formulation which may reduce the incidence and severity of side effects. If these fail, you may need other meds/options. Good luck.
