From what I've read the manufacturer discontinued it, but there may be generic equivalents available.

It is a nutritional supplement, so your doctor, or pharmacist should be able to help you find a suitable alternative.

The FDA warns that it may cause nausea, and constipation as side effects, in some people that take it.

Are you on any medications that may affect what you can safely take as a supplement?

Serving Size 1 Softgel
