After thought we decided to restart Pycnogenol and try to increase the dosage... 2 capsules a day instead of 1 and let's see what will come out of that. I'll start tomorrow morning and will report of any sign.
Darn it anyway! I'd be curious to see if you improve after stopping, then the causal link would be easier to draw.munchkin wrote:Date started:Oct 4th
Dosage:2 pills a day with food

Daflon 500mg results:
Oct 11 - One week results and I will stop taking Daflon. I have had some spasms in the area of my stenosis in my jugular and am having more balance issues and weakness in my hands. This might just be a coincidence.
1eye, super glad Pycnogenol is helping your infected foot. Enjoy your dreams!
