Hi

My husband has been on them for 4 years, I think they have helped slow his decline. The main side-effect he had was an upset stomach, I think this is fairly common and is the reason I think that the dose is gradually built up.

Hope this helps'

Hi Helen thank you for the reply, did the stomach upset settle after a while or was it for a long time?x

I have just remembered that when ever the dose was changed he had a couple of off days, so he would stay in bed then he would be fine.

Hello luda
My husband has been on Remylin for three years with no side effects
I would not like to say if it has helped.The consultant told us that it would help with the day to day living.You do not know if the decline would have been different if he had not been taking it.
Good Luck
