Dr. Shahzad MD :

Why do do you want to take pycnogenol instead of aspirin?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Customer:

Aspirin has side effects which I want to avoid

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I understand that but pycnogenol has not been found to be definitively effective.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Evidence regarding its use is very scanty to say the least.

Customer:

Does that mean that it can be used instead of aspirin in mild cases?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Well, you can use it if you want but as far as my recommendation is concerns I would not advise using it because we are not sure if its effective or not.

Customer:

OK

Dr. Shahzad MD :
