LDN and Tysabri

Hi all.

I am considering starting LDN. I 've been on Rebif for more than 4 years and it seems that it has stopped working for me. My neuro said that it would not do any harm to test it for a few months. He wanted me to start Tysabri, but... you know!

I just started 4.5mg (three nights so far), and today my left leg/foot is numb, like it's asleep. I'm a little freaked out and not sure what I should do. Should I just push through and see what happens, maybe this is temporary. ...

Aricept - vivid dreams

The dreams are perhaps less intense, no more thwarting of airplane hijackings or rescuing my kids from getting killed, but I still have quite the dreams almost every night.

Is this bad? I reallly don't want to stop taking the Aricept. I ...
