Very effective. I did experience side effects such as high blood pressure and high glucose levels. But overall I would use it again.

My Neruo has been adding 1G IV for my multiple sclrosis 1x daily for 5 days every month, then 1G for three days every 3 months now, in addition with my immune modulating drugs. They believe it does help maintain the MS as a proflactic course and I totally agree. IT HAS WORKED FOR ME FOR YEARS NOW.
