this med is very good besides the taste ( I did an experiment were i took a little piece of bread and wrapped the pill in it and it masked the taste of the pill when it went down i had to do something for that taste or i knew i was gonna vomit it back up!!!) it was very effective after the first dose my symptoms wore less harsh
