I've used the injections since they became available to me.
It is going on three years now. Up until I found this site and the wonderful tip
re: cutting them into thirds I was very fearful of the side effects. I would get a very tight chest and
shortness of breath. My Dr. did warn me of these effects and and kept a guarded
eye on me. I have also tried the nasal and the pills. I found that they were worthless to me. I also wait
to see If I can get through without using anything. Not a good idea since I have found that I have
wasted some very expensive medicine this way and put at least a few people through
hell watching me try to tough it out. I can say from my
own experience that the thirds tip works for me. It has failed a time or two but I also knew that I hadn't taken a
full dose and could use more later if needed and not exceed the recommended dosage.
I hope the input is helpful to you and I would gladly help you if you have any other questions re: this.
