Would the med Alpha lipoic sour be administered to pt's w/ multiple sclerosis?

Is this a prescribed med or is an herbal supplement and would it be found in a drug book?
Answers:
Alpha Lipoic Acid is not a prescribed medicine. I would put it into the "All Natural/herbal supplement" category. It's also an antioxidant. From what the following article shows, I can see how it could be used for one or more symptoms of MS, however it also say that it's "thought to do" this or that, but it's not showing the evidence of testing that it's been certainly proven to help.

I actually haven't heard of it prior to reading your grill today, so I'm not sure how helpful, if at all, it in truth is for a MS Patient.

Just becareful, and make sure that you discuss it with your doctor prior to starting any supplement that woudl be used to treat any condition.

Good luck to you. Source(s): http://altmedicine.about.com/od/alphalip…
