Didn't work for me.
Working / Worked
Yes, and No about the fact is worked. The first time I used it worked so great I was excited. Then it came back and it did not do much. I just recently got off the medicine and it helped, but it was a higher milligram. This time I did have side effects, I got the heartburn and I got a rash on my right arm like in the middle of where the arm bends.
Working / Worked

Working / Worked

Working / Worked
Moderate effectiveness
