I've been on my new meds for a week now. I still have high hopes for what they will do for me...but I'm having some funky side effects:

1. I'm a space-cadet: I cannot form a coherent sentence. This is difficult since I work with people all day long in customer service. I am forgetting simple words and how to put words together correctly. For example, I wanted to say "This phone is a very popular one..." but instead I attempted to stutter out "These ummm...thing is a very popular one..." RIGHT IN FRONT OF A CUSTOMER.

2. My hands are shaky and tingly. This is something I can handle, although it is slightly annoying.

3. I've lost my appetite. I am trying to ensure I am still eating so that I am not starving myself...I want to ensure adequate caloric intake...but I'm just not hungry!

4. My tummy hurts! Whenever I do eat something, my tummy gets rumbly and it hurts a bunch!

Tomorrow morning is also weigh-in day. I peaked today (I know, I know) and I hadn't lost a single thing, so I'm hoping for even .5 lb. by tomorrow!

Ok...back to homework :)

    Uh . . . be sure to mention these side effects to your Dr. That is important. Maybe the dose needs to be tweaked or the med has to be changed. Wishing you luck.
