Hi all: I was wondering if any of you have tried Limbrel, and how did it work or not work for you?
I tried it a couple of months ago, but the Dr that prescribed it wasn't familiar with it, and prescribed the wrong amount, and I didn't help much. Because he only prescribed 1- 250 mg a day, I didn't notice any help, plus I only took it for 2 weeks. I've talked to people who sware by it, but they say that:
- You have to take it continuously for at least 4 weeks before it helps. Is this true?
Would any of you who are familiar with this med agree. Also, I know it comes in 500 mg. have any of you tried that strength.
I just started this med again after getting the dose straightened out, but guess what, the samples the Dr gave me to try were 3 mos expired, so he told me to toss them after I took them for 3 days.
I still don't know if this med works since the first try was the wrong strength, and now the second time the med was expired, and it didn't help. I'm not having much luck so far, and my insurance won't pay for it, so I didn't want to get it filled until I see if it works.
Any info or advice on this med would really help. I've read the web site explaining that it's a medicinal food??? but does it help with the pain of OA or not.
