As to the question of interferon vs. verapamil, both agents have been shown to be beneficial in multiple published trials. The preference of this reviewer is to use verapamil, as it is less expensive, has a very low side effect profile, and has had several more published studies showing benefit. Interferon is the only injectable drug to date which has been shown in a placebo-controlled trial to have benefit, but the level of this benefit with respect to curvature reduction was less than what has been reported with verapamil.

Previous A naturopathic doctor also recommends L-arginine for PD, but insists that a low dose will do nothing. No, he is not selling L-arginine. He recommends a very high dose — at least 3 grams per day and working up to 21 grams per day. Do you know of any risks to trying this?
Next Are there any contraindications to using Adderall when one has a diagnosis of PD or if one were taking Trental and L-arginine as well as 10 mg of Cialis every other night?
