Has been suggested by my Neurologist that I need to think about trying it. As Geleniya doesn't seem to be doing what they were hoping for. 4Yrs later. Not a lot of Information in the introduction to patients booklet. Hopefully someone can help me out with it. Whether they have or are on it, side effects etc. Anything would be appreciated . Thankyou Sincerely Gayle .
