  • Perceived effectiveness for Numbness and Tingling with Pins and Needles: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 2700 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This does help with the sensory problems that get so much worse in the summer. I do get fluid retention in my legs at the higher dosage so it does come with a trade off. Once the heat and humidity gets better - Sept. I go back to lower doses
