Usually takes a couple months prior to seeing a difference, and hard to say whether this is a positive attitude or a better fit for you. Be aware though that GI side effects and flushing can occur not infrequently, and you might be more long lasting with Vumerity, same efficacy, but lower intolerance. Ask your doctor about this.
