  • Effectiveness
    Major (for pain)
  • Side effects
    Mild (headaches)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 850 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This should NOT be taken by MEN. I have experienced a slight headache from taking the meds the first few days...take with food in the morning and that seems to have resolved the issue. This supplement is useful in also treating painful prementral symptoms, and in balancing the menses for those who bleed heavily with painful cramps. My menses have shortened and become less painful.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: headaches
