Comment:
I Was directedm to take this medication (2 tablespoons)3 times a day. It worked good at first, then it worked okay, sometimes (2tablespoons) 3 times a day was to much, so I would cut back. The it wouldn't work the way I was told it would. I am still working with dosage to try and get it to where it is right for me.
