I would like to hear from others who would give this a try. I had read the leaflet and suspected it may be these, but even after reading all these notes, it is hard to believe the devastating effect this drug has. One item to note is that most physicians are under heavy pressure from big pharma to sell the most profitable Rx drugs. Not high but with the history in the family, high enough.
