  • Effectiveness
    None (for rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Advice & Tips: Strangely, this had practical no effect on me. The purpose was to boost Benepali, because Benepali had lost its effect little by little. Things got a little better after one week and lasted for about 6 weeks, but I don't know why. I will continue Benepali another 2 month.
