Prior to taking it, I was at a pain level of 5 constantly. It has taken away the underlying pain ... my shoulder/knee/hip/ankle still hurts, but not ALL of them at the same time, plus it is easier to deal with pain when you can say "It's my shoulder, so I'll lay on the other shoulder." instead of being overwhelmed by "ouch it hurts all over".
It took me a week to get it in my system. For that first week, I couldn't drive for at least 30 mins after taking it, due to the drowsiness it caused, but that has cleared up since.
It does have a wicked kick if you miss a dose though.
Prior to taking this, I would have random chest tightness and breathing difficulty. The allergist thought my symptoms sounded more like acid reflux than an actual lung issue, and what would you know, so far he's been right!
This one is used to regulate my monthly cycle so that I can mentally prepare myself for the effects of PMDD.
