Advice & Tips: It was worth a try as I was having generally worsening symptoms without any new lesions showing up my MRI. After a blood test showed I was low, I started the supliment right before long trip (24 hours of flying). For the next three weeks, I had far more energy than I would have thought possible. I have continued since I got home, and I've had far more energy to excercise and have had less cognative fog which I associate with being tired.

Advice & Tips: Had a blood test on 12/16/2010 that showed my Vit D levels were too low (doc told me this on 1/5/2011) so I decided to start taking it again. I use Vit D in drop form; it's mixed with an oil, so I put 5 drops (10,000 IU) on top of my peanut butter toast in the morning that I eat for breakfast. I don't even taste it.
