Advice & Tips: Awesome medicine. Cleared upy rashes in a heart beat and gave me all my energy back!!! i am only stopping temporarily due to hip surgery complications!!!! Burden due to time taken off work for the treatment-plan on at least 2-3 hours for infusion-- but, well worth it!!! But, very expensive. My insurance covered it all-- but it costs aprox 15,000 and that's what my insurance actually paid too
Cost: < $25 monthly
