I have taken one tablet per day at lunch time but on 2nd day in night I felt stomach pain, a very thin line of blood from mouth mixed and swelling on my lips. I immediately stopped its use and now the bottle of 120 (118 left) tablets are waste for me so what to do now? Is it will be safe to take half tablet in day or should not take any risk?
