So far Foquest is the only med that I have been on. When I first took it it was super powerful and I was a bit jittery (the day I drank coffee with it was not good), but that faded in a few days and I felt great. My dr wanted me to wait a month before seeing him again. By the time that happened, I was barely feeling the effects of the med. (I was on 45 mg)
So today, I went, got a new script for Foquest 70mg… and holy crap… lots of heart palpitation, jittery type side effects. Even some tightness in my chest and shoulder blade. I went to the clinic ( I don’t live in a city so I was trying to avoid having to drive myself all the way in to go to an ER). After an hour and a half just waiting to get in, the feelings we’re all subsiding. I have a bp machine at home and a smart watch that tells my heart rate, so I was kind of monitoring it from home. Probably not the smartest move… but now I’m just waiting for the meds to wear off (it’s a 16 hr med). Gonna call my dr in the morning and NOT take that again.
Has anyone else tried Foquest??? How did it work for you?
