If you feel weak, have an increased body weight, pale body skin, lack of appetite, fever that is accompanied by sweat, chills, unexplained thirst and body pains just to mention a few, then you should visit a doctor as soon as possible.
Let your doctor know if you plan to have children, if you are breastfeeding or if you are pregnant. The reason is because it will help the practitioner know how to administer the drug. This will also prevent harm to the unborn child.
If the symptoms persist, it would be wise to inform a specialist. You will either be told to stop the medication or to reduce the amount until the effects reduce.
