I just started taking the drug and I can walk without the aid of a walker, already. I am supposed to take 2x100mg capsules three times a day and I only have it for the day and already it works....I will keep you posted as to the side effects, if any.

I take 600mg three times a day. I tried using 300mg three times a day, but had to go back to 600. I even went seven days completely without it. By the end of the seve ... Show Full Comment

I started taking this after a painful bout with shingles in my right eye. I take1800mgs a day. I was taking 2700 mgs. but I could not stay awake. My memory has suffered. I also have bowel problems. It has also helped diabetic neuropathy in my feet a little bit.
