Has anyone suffered side effects? Been taking them for a month now and been getting bad head aches past week and feeling very low (see depression post) wondering if there is a connection?

What dose are you taking, I was on 20 then 40 and now back to 20. Headaches and depression can be side effects, I would go back to your doctor, if you are going to get them it will be at the beginning. Are you on other medication, I am and when I started getting worried, went to doctor and he checked whether they could interact and they could. Don't suffer, get checked out, I had a blood test and they found I was suffering from anaemia and have been on iron tablets, feeling a lot better.

Yes, me - I was on them for 3 months, had awful headaches and terrible dizziness. Funny you mention about feeling low - I was teary a lot of the time but put it down to other stuff that was going on - maybe it was the tablets. I stopped them and feel much better now.

Go back to your gp, they can change them, there are other medicines that do the same thing.
