I still seem to be experiencing a sense of unsteadiness that began when I started Mino 15 days ago.

It varies from day to day in intensity.
Anyone else have this and if so how long did it last?

My mino herx lasted a long time. Like months not days. I still take it but only get the "head screaming" sound every few weeks. Sounds like a train screeching n the railroad tracks.

It helped me. If you feel bad though, you should check with doc.

Yes!......I had this, especially when I increased from 100mg 2x a day to 200mg 2x a day. It was awful and didn't go away until I was off of it for several weeks. I seemed to tolerate the 100mg but each time I tried to increase, bam, the unsteadiness instantly appeared.

Tell your doc, they may take you off........

Thanks for your imput Gail, 'cause I'd rather think it is due to the Mino than the Babs which was my other(scarier) thought and why I couldn't go back to sleep and am now on the computer....

I had this immediately after starting this med at 100 mg 2x day. Also instense head/ear pain and pressure.

My dr. decreased dose to 50 mg 2x day and it subsided. I think this is the kiddie dose.

I stayed on that dose for a month and a few weeks ago went back to 100 mg 2xday. The dizziness and pain didn't come back.

I'm going to slowly work up to full dose of 200 mg 2xday
