Advice & Tips: I can't remember exactly when this was taken off the market; but I know it did a lot to take the edge off my pain without getting into the stronger medications such as Vicodin, etc. which I won't start taking at this point. When my tolerence for pain gets more overwhelming...I'll have to consider something else. I like your site...seeing that others take lesser meds and get good results...I need to study this more :) sounds much better to me!
