Can you help? I'm trying to write s report and want to express the
idea of taking a medicine or supplement and initially getting
serious adverse effects but hours later feeling better from its
I thought of "see saw" but that doesn't suggest adverse effects.
Also it gives exactly equal time to positive and negative effects,
which is not usually the case.
Then ... I had in mind one of those old toy cars which you strike
along the ground to spin some flywheel inside and then letting the
car power away merrily. However I can't find a phrase for this.
Metaphors, similes, catchy phrases, whatever.
