  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Increase effect of another treatment)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Easy to take. My dose was very small and intended to complement Copaxone treatment, as I have several lesions on the spinal cord. My doctor said that the imunossupressants like imuran show some evidence at preventing more lesions on spinal cord. I hope so...
