    I have been prescribed Riluzole 50mg twice daily ( subject to satisfactory blood results) has anyone taken this with good effect?
    Hi bromleycross. Welcome to the forum. Have you seen this thread on Riluzole?

    BTW with that forum name you sound like another person from Greater Manchester.

      Hi Bromley. Welcome to the place no one really wants to be but where you will meet many lovely people who are, or their partner is, on the same journey. Ask whatever you want and you will get an answer.
      Thinking of you.

        Of course you are, you wouldn't be human if you weren't. The diagnosis stinks, it can't be sugar coated but we all know how tough it is and are here for you.

        As Richard said, ask any question, or feel free to have a rant, a moan, or a weep - no judgement here, only empathy.

        Sending you a big hug.

        Love Ellie.
