I was not aware of my surroundings & hav ... Show Full Comment

    I have been reading some of the reviews, and it seems that people have (on average) either a very good experience or very bad... I know that every person reacts to a drug differently, and also that the experience and skill of administering doctor seems to be very important. Having said that, my experience was excellent.
