Has anyone read the studies on Fisetin? And, is anyone currently taking Fisetin? If so, have you noticed any benefits or disadvantages to taking it? Just curious. I never take supplements, but the studies on this one with Alzheimers, ALS and neuronal protection had my interest. Read More

Copaxone 3x a week

Woo Hoo!  The FDA has approved a 40 ml dose of copaxone that can be administered 3x a week vs 7x.  I called Copaxone (Shared Solutions) immediately and the ball is rolling to get my Neurologist to approve the new script.  The clinical studies showed that it was just as effective as the 3x a week protocol.  Now… Read More

Dickering, Charles Dickens, Benedick as opposed to Benedict. What other kinds of associations can we make here? Perhaps I need some assistance? Let us assemble Avengers.… Read More

That's great and all......

but asking people to pay so much for the newest MS therapy medications is completely insane. I really want to 'try' some of these new ones but as far as I know, Medicare won't cover them for awhile. Why can't they base their prices on your income level? Some people are on Social Security, and there just isn't… Read More

Stem cell transplant and MS*

I am now experiencing a few possible symptoms but not sure if they are truly a return of an MS relapse. Is there any information on this… Read More
