every time I'm in cycle it's the first thing that really helps. It does become a vicious merry-go-round though, because, as everyone has said, you can't take it long term. It generally works within 1 or 2 days to stop my HA's completely for at least a few days. Then the tapering off slowly brings them back..a week of hell...then start again. Have never taken it for more than a month, my cycles are like clockwork (6-8 weeks) so I will usually wait until I'm a few weeks into it before I start.
Minor side effects for me are thirst, minor constipation, a general blah feeling and leg sure you have bananas around.
Good luck and PFDANs.
