- You should take Taurox for four weeks. You may not feel any effects for a few days. Some people feel a bit more tired as the Taurox begins to work before the boost to the immune system begins. However, if fatigue does not go away in one month, see a doctor, as you may have something more serious than fatigue. Taurox is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any serious underlying disease, it is designed to improve quality of life. It is intended and labeled for the treatment of non-life-threatening fatigue that patients can recognize and evaluate without special testing.

When you start using Taurox, there may be some generally mild symptoms such as headaches, joint aches and unusual feelings in the chest. If you notice this, contact your doctor and skip 2 days and restart with a partial daily dose every other day. The presence of initial symptoms is believed to indicate it is the appropriate medicine for you and will be very helpful once the right dose is found.
Most frequently the benefits start slowly and improvement is gentle and progressive and without any unwanted symptoms. Initial improvement may be subtle and not observed until completion of one month of therapy.
