The psych doctor said I was normal and intelligent but I'm depressed and have anxiety. Well, duh! Who wouldn't? I don't feel that I'm depressed, just frustrated that there aren't better meds.
The Provigil worked great in the morning but it wore off too soon after the second dose at noon. Now I'm taking Ritilin and that seems to get me thru most days. Still can't believe I'm taking such a drug!
Right now I'm on Betesaron since about February. All interFEARons make me lose too much weight. Come to find out they mess with your thyroid.
Huh! Imagine that!
I don't think the answers will come from any Dr. or research lab. I think they will come from one or more of us MS'ers. We are the ones with the huge investment with this.

Anywhere from 5% - 100%. From the 5% organization where do you suppose that goes? Some goes directly to people suffering thru grants and scholarships and the rest to administration? Ckeck on that. It's very interesting how they work with the billions of dollars a year.
Every psychologist does it differently as far as what testing they choose to do.
