Nov 26, 2012 (Started Aug 24, 2011)

  • Perceived effectiveness for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis): Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Been rolled over to open-label for DEX. We hope to have a read-out soon (Dec/Jan) on results. I either have a really slow onset or this drug is really working... maybe both. While I've lost much strength in my right hand, all else is good for the last 2 years. My only negative was an early spike in Liver enzimines...
Cost: < $25 monthly
