Medicine worked great. Only downfall was I appear to be allergic. I aquired a case of hives on my hands which went away when I quit taking the meds and returned when meds resumed. I was taking 80mg. otherwise it is the best I felt in years.

This medicine has worked very well for me, the packinging needs to be re-vamped, as it is very hard to get out unless you have scissors. Very pricy even with insurance, Nees to come up with a generic
