Advice & Tips: I take this mostly every day. It is difficult for me to say this drug does anything specific. I know it is an antioxidant that naturally occurs in the body and is used in respiration. I find that I am less tired when I take this drug.

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for General health)
  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for multiple sclerosis)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I am currently trying this naturally occurring, but synthetically produced drug. I haven't taken this long enough to see any definite positive effects toward MS symptoms. I don't have symptoms of MS often enough to make a definite correlation anyway. It seems to have made it more easy to stay up late, without feeling tired or becoming sluggish. This supplement (not a vitamin) is crucial to chemical respiration, recommended for MS by holistic doctors in MS society magazines, it has been shown to be at low levels in people suffering from conic illness. I don't believe it has any negative symptoms, but take at your own risk not evaluated by the FDA.
