i am using this drug to treat spams after a severe stroke. it has been effective inasmuch that it has relaxed my muscles in order for me to be able to incorporate my limb to daily actvities. i am far from been cured. i've only used the drug for three weeks but i am confident that i i continue its use it will help me recover. although not guaranteed, i expect to be at 90-95% within one year.
