User avatar Hello,Some drugs act by pharmocological action,and some act as placebos.It is very difficult to comment on individual drugs but modern medicine depend on trials to study different drugs and molecules.There are many good herbal and other chemicals that need to be studied and authenticated.I confess my ignorance of the above mentioned product.
