The rest of the month I shuffled in order to walk. The morning of Dec 30 I awoke feeling better and decided to go for a walk on the beach. As I was walking I heard a pop and felt a hot burning in my lef ... Show Full Comment

    PSA test before taking was 5.24 - after taking one 750 tablet each day for 21 days my PSA test result was 1.22. Only side effects were a tinny taste in my mouth, minor muscle soreness and a slight swelling in ankles. A small price to pay vs the prospect of possibly having prostrate cancer!

    I have a Lymph Node infection. My ENT prescribed this med for me. It works great! The only thing I don't like is Dry Mouth. It was a hassle feeling thirsty. But other than that a bit of Nausea But, When taken on a full stomach I did well. Also It did mess up my body clock ( Sleepless Nights ) like alot of other people on here as well. The hassles outweighed the benefits for me.
