poster, it is Jegaquin oo and not just Jega. The medical cure for Orubebetitis is JEGAQUIN!
Jegaquin can also be taken as a sedative and a calming agent.
it is currently in a capsule form, but scientist are currently working on Jegaquin syrup so that the average Nigeria affected or having the symptoms of orubebetitis can take it to prevent orubebetitis.
