Trial report 10 weeks in.
Firstly it involves taking 4 tablets twice a day, which must be better than having injections
No side effects except the odd headache when we started, which may or may not have been related.
After the first 4 weeks I was feeling stronger and a lot more confident, I even managed an hour in the garden, moving a load of gravel by wheelbarrow without any major drama. Neurologist examination showed improved strength in arms and legs and things were looking good.
About week 5 I caught a bad cold that stuck around for about 3 weeks. This knocked me back, with a lot of fatigue problems. I saw the Neuro at week 8, he said that it was to be expected with a cold and he predicted that things would pick up again when it cleared. Tests showed that strength had not dropped.
Now in week 10 and the cold is a distant memory (I hope that´s not a new symptom
) and I feel I´m back to where I was before the cold and things are looking up. Saturday I managed an hour running (well limping) up and down the touch line at my sons soccer match. I needed an hours sleep in the afternoon to get my energy back but that might have been because I was up at 6.30 to get him there.
All in all I´m feeling very positive about the way things are working out, long may it continue.
