This made me feel good. Thanks! I think you hit the nail on the head - impressive with so little information. I'm still going to go see my dermatologist on Wednesday but thanks!

This was very helpful. Thanks! I had intense pain-couldn't walk after 1 pill my doctor said I should try again since it's not a side effect. Glad to you are giving optioptions.
