Advice & Tips: This was so easy compared to injections!It even tasted good!, No needles, no disinfecting, no waiting for the doctor or the nurse. This is just fantastic. If this works, and I think it did for me this is a treatment that has to be more available. I think this should be extremely inexpensive. I bought mine off the Internet and I think I did well that way.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
