Advice & Tips: always take the medicine as directed, myself I seeem to take it only when I feel the sensation of inflammation. This is not what one should do to make it work efficient, i should be taking 1 a day even if no pain according to the Physician. I like to only take medicine when it is at the pain is worse. Bad girl, I am.
