It is also actively absorbed in the small intestine so if you drank a gallon of it, most would not even be absorbed, just pooped out. No liver/kidney/heart/stomach toxicity. Doesnt interact with other meds. Se are mainly sedation unless titrated slowly, weight gain, and swelling.
Kidney. Sleepiness and confusion are common complaints. Some complain of weight gain. There are reports of depression. Most find it helpful. Keeping the dose low tends to lessen side effects.
