Hello, Nestro31! How are you?

If your doctor has instructed you to lower the dose, it would be best to do as they've directed.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and joint/muscle aches.

Is there anything else I can help with?
