What should I watch for?

Visit your doctor or health care professional for regular checks on your progress. Check your heart rate and blood pressure regularly. Ask your doctor or health care professional what your heart rate should be and when you should contact him or her. If you get a fever, especially in the first few months, call your doctor or health care professional. Do not treat yourself.

You may get drowsy or dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs mental alertness until you know how this medicine affects you. To avoid dizzy or fainting spells, do not stand or sit up quickly, especially if you are an older person. Alcohol can make you more drowsy and dizzy. Avoid alcoholic drinks.

Your mouth may get dry. Chewing sugarless gum or sucking hard candy, and drinking plenty of water may help. Contact your doctor if the problem does not go away or is severe.
