I tried it as well... it didnt work for me. The side effects were very strong. My eyes tended to cross a lot the first few days, the drowsiness was pretty intense, and it caused weight gain almost immediately. It helped a little with the pain in my hips, but not enough to deal with the side effects. But, we are all different. I would say give it a try.
