That is how I started on Align. It works good for me - in about two weeks I had formed stools and they remain that way. I also tried Philips and another one recommended by friend, Primal Defense. I found the last two gave me too much gas I could not overcome in time. No harm in trying them - especially free and my doctor gave me enough for one month.
