I am in the 2nd day of this med for severe allergies/sinus and a possible torn meniscus in right knee & I am totally amazed after the first dose and this 2nd day. It is totally amazing the great results with no side effects--Don't want to do it long term (I am using the 6 day-21 pill pack)but for now--Wow!!what a relief.

The mensicus in my right knee is deterioting and I will most like have to have another knee replacement (left done), I also have a bulging disc in my lower back. After the first day's dose, no pain. No serious side effects. Took this a year and half ago with same results. Better than surgery!

Only on the second day of a 6 day, 21 pack prescription. For over a week I couldn't walk without debilitating pain in my left hip.
