Drowsiness, fatigue, lethargy, psychomotor retardation, lightheadedness, dizziness, difficulty in concentration, confusion, uncontrollable laughter, sex drive increase.

Great! I am having only the second "hangover" in my life. My first hangover is here.
I have a killer headache. I hate everyone. I am faintly nauseous (although that is better now that I have eaten). My tremor is more pronounced than usual. I am clammy and have cotton-mouth.
You know who told me not to take this? Frankie. He told me I would feel rotten. He knew people who took it. I told him I wasn't taking it recreationally. He said he wasn't kidding, he knew a girl who took it for bipolar disorder and asked my dosage. I told him 50 mg and that maybe she was crazy because she was bipolar.
Frankie was right.
I hate everyone.
I was actually petulant with SB and that is so wrong of me. He was very gracious. I am mortified.
Right at this moment I hate the Pentagon Channel. They just sent me this email

0500 - AFRICOM Ceremony: GEN William Ward, Commander of U.S. Africa Command, speaks at the AFRICOM Establishment Commemoration Ceremony in Stuttgart, Germany. (Live, VoD) Encore presentation at 0900hrs
I want to see that, but they must know I can't possibly get up at 0700, much less 0500 when I am taking all these drugs. What are they thinking?
Oh, other possible side effects?
retrograde ejaculation - Jennifer wants to know if that means it will be like it was in the 70s.
Tremor - great I already have one!
Headache - check
muscle stiffness - check
slurred speech - Good Lord!
tinnitus - does that go well with my otosclerosis?
tingling of extremities -that could actually be useful
complex partial seizures
and rarely, impaired speech, muscle twitching, numbness, dystonia, euphoria, and involuntary movements.
That is a partial list.
What am I supposed to do with a 4 hour erection?
