Just that really, this is the third med my doc has prescribed but never heard of it. Any advice ladies? Xx

I was on it up until recently and it massively reduced the amount of times I was sick which was fab! BUT it gave me horrendous headaches and constipation so be wary of that, I ended up taking it alongside lactulose which my doc prescribed x
