Question:

Because I have vein problems my doctor prescribed to me elastic stockings and Phlebodia tablets. However, I have learned that Phlebodia tablets contains potentially harmful element E-124 (Ponceau 4R). What do You think about these tablets. Are they usefull at all? Do they really increase the efficiency of elastic stockings (I wear class 2).

Answer:

I am not familiar with nor have I used Phlebodia. You should pose these questions to your physician.
