Reported Results
Benefits:   marginal, not sure if recovrey was from the drug or from the infection running it's course.
Side effects:   none; however, anxiety was a result because of the confusing way the dosage was explained. Here is the detail: 2 tabs today, then 2 tabs twice a day for x3 days, 1 tab 2x daily x2 days, then 1 tab in am x2 days.
Comments:   Chronic bronchitis-type sympptoms were treated, daily dosage varied and was confusing and difficult to administer. Not able to pinpoint if recovery came from the infection running it's course or from the drug. No side affects, but anxiety taking a steriod in such an unusual way.
