The extreme price tag is because a pharmaceutical company sells it - no other reason other than developing it in tablet form
Not to appear to be taking their side, but they also took it through the trial process. A risk as well as a cost. 4-AP has been available to MS sufferers for a long time, however, its only now that many will learn of its benefits, because of the pharnaceutical's money grabbing
Maybe ask your pharmacist what the shelf life of 4-AP is, and how much he sells. If you access your caps from a pharmacy that has a high turn over of 4-AP, the supply is more likely to have a longer shelf life.
See, the problem here was, at the time, I introduced my pharmacist to this compound. It was on my request that he investigated a source, and purchased and compounded it just for me; ie at the time I was his only consumer. What kind of concerns me a little is that if there is a "shelf life" issue with it, if he was to use any remaining material from back when I ordered it and then stopped, new patients would be buying sub-standard stuff. I do not know if he or is supplier know or even IF there is a shelf life issue. However, it was sooo long ago now, I am sure he would of purchased a new supply.
Now, I am not so interested in 4-AP, but in 4-AP-3-MeHO
