    I'm on my first day of trying Kuvan–experiencing slight nausea. How long do the side effects typically last?

    Good luck Sarah! When I first began Kuvan I had slight headaches, which we are not even 100% positive were from Kuvan. The headaches went away after a week or two. Most people who I have talked to that take Kuvan said they either did not experience any side effects, or the side effects went away on their own.
