I often assign it to my patients. The tool has a favorable price, pronounced anti-inflammatory and vascular strengthening effect. It improves blood circulation in the rectal area, promotes healing of cracks and knots. It is a pity that it is not recommended for the treatment of hemorrhoids in pregnant women.

During pregnancy, often swollen legs. After childbirth varicose veins clearly manifested. My legs hurt badly, it was hard to walk. Since I was breastfeeding, I did not dare to take the pills, but I used the ointment. Not to say that the effect was stunning, but the pain became less, the heaviness in the legs was gone. For the best effect you need to use extra medication.

The doctor prescribed this medicine in the form of drops for oral administration. The husband did not want to drink them at first - tasteless, but when the discomfort increased, he agreed.
