  • Effectiveness
    Can’t tell (for Osteoarthritis)
  • Side Effects
    Severe (Allergic reaction, itching, Itching)
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Advice & Tips: Test on a small area first! Silly me, I smeared it all over my hands, wrists, and lower arms before testing. I had a major allergic reaction - itching, swelling, etc. - and have never used it again.
