Anyone else on FTY720?

Hello
I have been on FTY for 6 months. Have had very good success but one big concern. I am getting these spots on my eyes or floaters. I know i never had them so bad or at all before but my Neuro insists it is irrelevant and nothing to be concerned about. I'm not so sure.
Anyone else on it and noticed anything like this?
Thanks for your thoughts
Travis

I was disappointed that someone has already patented this, because it tells me that profit is the motivator? Right? Anyway, good info, even if it is on rats...

Testosterone

My physian's assistant suggested that I try it. I'm not sure if she was jocking or not. I'm 45 so I'm starting to notice the thngs that come with middle age males. I told her I was slowly losing the hair on my legs she just fire it out there. I've never had my testosterone level checked so I have no idea what it might be. I've heard horror stories from guys I played football ...
