A pill with a chip?

I wasn't sure where to post this, perhaps if we had an "Unnatural Aproach" forum or maybe the humor forum would also be good except I think these people are serious (which makes it not so funny).

Appointment with endocrinologist

Hi Everyone,

A few months ago i posted because my vit D level was low and my neuro referred me to see an endocrinologist.

Well that appointment was this morning.

He basically wants me to continue taking 1000iu Vit d but he has ordered me another blood test just to see if that has worked to increase the level.
He says that taking the supplement is just as good as getting it from the sun. ...

Anyone heard about a study for Nerispirdine to improve walking ability/speed? My neuro's office (Axiom Clinical Research) is recruiting candidates and I think I'm going to do it.

I think it's a potassium blocker like 4-ap/Fampridine.

It's a double-blind placebo controlled study but I don't know what phase it's in. There are four possible doses:
1. Placebo
2. 50 mg
3. 100 mg
4. 200 mg ...

I have just started Copaxone 4 days ago.

Looking forward to getting to know all of you.

terrified of tysabri...what to do? husband was diagnosed with MS about 2 years ago. He tried Rebif and had horrible side effects. He switched to Avonex and did better, but it wasn't clear what was worse: the disease or the treatments. His doctor told us about Tysabri and told us to think about it. He's been off all meds for 3 months and is doing so well. He's like a new man...every now and then his leg gets weak, ...
