Comment:
I am a 77 yr old female who recently had cataract surgery. The opthomologist suggested EPO for Dry eyes ( I can not take Flax seed products.)I have been using EPO capsules, 2300mgs, for a week-too soon to know results but I have had three tia's and one minor stroke and am taking Plavix. Should I be taking EPO?????
