I have been taking colocynth 30c to relieve pain and stiffness

Customer Question

I have been taking colocynth 30c to relieve pain and stiffness in my hip which sometimes also goes doe n to my knee. As advised in the past I took the remedy twice a day for three days,then waited a week and took one at night. This has not helped, and I wonder whether to continue with this remedy or try another one.
