I didn’t think it would help, but it did

I’ve got a hereditary problem with my veins, everyone from my mother’s side have an awful varicosity. I’m quite a young man, so, this problem disturbs me just a little. But when my leg started aching again in the spots where the veins are located , I decided to do something and to get some treatment. I went to the pharmacy and bought the first non-prescription drug available, as I wasn’t eager to see the doctor just for a prescription. It appeared to be a dietary supplement based on the buckeye which is rather successfully used as maintenance therapy in treating varicosity.
I took it during the whole course of treatment, as it is mentioned in the instruction. First of all, I can say that my veins don’t disturb me so far and I feel relieved. Of course, I can suppose that the pain has disappeared itself as it used to , but I want to believe that the drug has helped me. However, it had one side effect. Be the way, the size of the pills is very big, you can see it on the photo, so, it’s inconvenient to swallow. And the side effect consists in the influence on the gastrointestinal tract, on the intestines particularly. Personally I suffered from a light form of colitis which I managed to overcome in a couple of weeks, because it happens to me quite often (I have a weak gastrointestinal tract). So, take it with great care in the case of gastrointestinal problems, and it would be better to avoid the drugs based on the buckeye in the period of exacerbation. You’d better take it after meals, though all people suffering from stomach problems should know this anyway, as this aspect is related to the other drugs as well.
In general, there are more pros than cons, it’s quite a good high quality dietary supplement. I recommend it.
