    Mild (headaches)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Advice & Tips: I received 3 rounds but don't think it was effective. It was a very expensive procedure and required additional travel expenses, which had become increasingly difficult for my condition.

Advice & Tips: I live in the U.S. but go to Israel for this. It's a long and expensive trip. I cannot tell whether I have seen any improvement from it, but I also have not had any side effect. The headache was temporary and was gone by the 3rd day. So far I have received two treatments and plan to get one more.
