Medication

Medication

Hello,

Does anyone take a medication that doesn't have a lot of side effects or risk of PLM (or PML, I forget which it is). I'm trying to decide on something but I don't like any medication I've read about. Any advice is appreciated.

Thank You,

Lesley

Does Anyone Have A Spinal Cord Stimulator For MS Pain?

Does Anyone Have A Spinal Cord Stimulator For MS Pain?

I also know Nuvigil is very similar to Provigil and… read more

Thanks PjJacoby, my script was for only 30 pills, so I couldn't have done that anyway. I've read between 20 to 30 reviews on Nuvigil and some people say… read more
