The fact that some people may perceive more pain in the initial phase of taking Recogen® is not related to the product but to the “ups and downs” of pain in osteoarthritis. Some days, you may feel fine and then after a few days, you may feel worse again. Several clinical studies have proven the effectiveness of Recogen® against osteoarthris, so continue to take Recogen® as per normal. If you experience pains not related to osteoarthritis, you may like to confirm with a medical doctor on your condition before taking Recogen®.
