    I wait in silence for that feeling of rest and nearness to the divine presence. Over and above all trials from MS cannot persevere me there. Thank God for release and to overcome self.

    Rick N shared details about Cymbalta

    From what i have read, this med is more effective than Paxil. My Pdoc wouldn't prescribe it so my PCP did it for me. I realize that Pdoc"s have their protocol, but they are rather"snootie" about the need to be in control. That's just my opinion.

    Rick N added a treatment evaluation for Gilenya

    • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Slight
    • Perceived effectiveness for to slow down progression: Slight
    • Side Effects: Moderate
    • Adherence: Usually
    • Burden: Not at all
    • Dosage: 0.5 mg Daily
    • Advice & Tips: of course a pill is better than giving myself a shot, but that is not the full evaluation point that I would make. Gelenya messed up my thinking processes and threw me into the throe's of depression and anxiety issues. I would noo longer advise this treatment to anyone.
    • Cost: $25-49 monthly
