Comparison of Pycnogenol and Daflon in treating chronic venous insufficiency: a prospective, controlled study
The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical efficacy of oral Pycnogenol (Horphag Research Ltd., UK) in patients with severe chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) in comparison to the combination of diosmin and hesperidin (Daflon, Servier, France). A group of 86 patients with severe chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), venous hypertension, ankle swelling) and previous history of venous ulcerations received either oral Pycnogenol (capsules) 150 mg or 300 mg daily for 8 weeks or Daflon, 1,000 mg/day.

That shall not bare anyone who's willing to try for himself. I have a "motor" MS; in a way that I have no fatigue, no dizziness, no vertigo, no headaches etc... (and I aim to believe no cognitive problems either ) but am tri-plegic (only 1 arm/hand remain functional) and that is supposed to be a spinal chord lesions located problem. That "could" explain it?
