Advice & Tips: Together with prayer this medication and Chemo ( Novantrone ) over the past three months and 2 MRI's there has been no advancement of the MS this is great news for me and our family. My brain has had forward progression of lesions since September 2009 And, for the spine there has been no advancement of the MS since July of 2011. Although, I have continue to have MS symptoms the severity has remained consistent and pain is much better managed with longer relief than from all the other medications that I was on. I was able to stop all my other medications. Except for Ambein and Celexa.

Advice & Tips: POSITIVE SIDE EFFECTS: Helps with balance, speech, pain, spasms, and energy. I am currently in Chemotherapy ( Novantrone) I started Medical Marijuana about the same time as the Chemo The 5th MRI I had in Jan. 2011 showed more lesions which has occurred on every MRI previous to this last one in June. This one showed no advancement in the Brain, as for Lesions in the Spine, I had a new one. Besides THC content their are two other active ingredients. Sativa and Indica.has occurred on every MRI The higher the % of Indica equals better pain management and spasm control. The higher the Sativa % level usually more active and quieter you become.
