Advice & Tips: I did not take it as it was prescribed, I was supposed to take it 3 times a day, and I took it usually only once or twice. It did not seem to do anything, so I would think "why bother". Maybe if I had tried a higher dose or actually taken it 3 times a day religiously, it would have made a difference.
