Tell me why the viotren appeared to work at first and then stopped working.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 11 months ago

The supplement market is totally unregulated

you could have gotten a bad batch of it

there is no oversight of this industry

is this helpful?

Not really. I knew that. All I have taken came from the same sealed bottle, and it was with a double your money back guarantee.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 11 months ago

Then you might be becoming resistant to it

like any drug the effects become less over time

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
