02 Oct 2016 I am 32 years old. I took it for three days, i were feeling normal but on forth day, when I took it, I were feeling pain in chest, nausea, breathing difficulty and pain in stomach and ribs. I took plenty of water to feel relax. I were feeling that I might fell down on the floor or I might need to call ambulance. It made me very conscious about the use of medicines like that.
