    I can definitely see a difference from not using it, but I have learned you have got to take it with food on your stomach, because if not it makes you sick. My pimples are not getting as big as they use to and they don't last as long.

    I have been using this for 3 weeks now and I see a difference but not a drastic change. My body started reacting by the second week; I get really bad nausea and I throw up right after I take it.
