Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I also have tendonitis in both shoulders and tore a bicep muscle. This all started happening 2 days after i stopped meds. Do not take unless it's a matter of life or death. My Peripheral Neuropathy could potentially get worse. To the point of being in a wheelchair. Seriously, do not take this drug unless you are super desperate. Ask if there's an alternative. This stuff is poison for real.
