  • side effects
    Mild (Constipation)
  • Adherence

    A little hard to take

Advice & Tips: Do limit your physical activity. Let your wound or incision properly heal. My wound or incision point has skin yet to heal completely and due to friction of clothes from bending over or lifting and contracting of abdominal muscles. It is very hard to succeed here because I am still active.
Cost: < $25 monthly
