Will start this medication for the first time in June 2013
Worked for my arm 6 months after i finished the course my arms dried up and closed. That was 6 years ago. I have had 2 other courses to try and help my groin with no such luck Side affects though vary but are very dry skin lips arms whole body becomes itchy. Also you can become depressed it does have that affect and as most are already depressed having this condition it can worsen. Also not to be taken when pregnant or to think about becoming for at 6 months once course is finished.
