Comment:
This is the second time I have tried xalatan. The first time I lasted about a month this time I am a week into it and I think I am going to have to stop it again, my body hurts my muscles ake and I feel sick all the time. I keep telling myself that it will go away after awhile, but I dont know how long I can keep feeling this way.
