Well, I took it in the morning adn by 12:30 I had crunchy pains that stretched left to right under my ribcage. I have some residue also after I go potty. Very uncomfortable feelign. I will stop taking it for a week and see if the pains subside. I am terrified of a significant flare and usually don't take anything extra, but I have read so many posts with people who use it, so I thiought I would give it a try. Maybe it isn't right for me. We shall see.
