Comment:
I wrote a review before about my dissatisfaction with this medication and how it does nothing for the pain. It seems like the only reviews that stay posted are those in favor of the medication. Is the pharmacy paying for that. I paid $250 for 60 pills that only work as sleeping tablets and have ugly side effects for me.
