I really am scared by this and don't even know how successful it is as a treatment. Can anyone give me any advice?? How well does it clear up the scales?? Are there any safer alternatives? I am so sick to death of Dermo's at present. I can't find one i like that is up to date and educated on Ich! I find out more on the internet esp when it has come to creams over the past year. Thank you
Well i have been on the drug neotigason for about 17yrs,and in my experiance its fantastic,but since chating with others on the board it can have different side effect to each person,my scales have all nearly gone,although i do get the occ sore joints,and my hair can get quite dry,but apart from that its fine,but who knows the long term effect,but i am lowering my dose to 10mg per day,at the moment i take 25mg per day,i came off it to have my daughter,she is eight now and no skin problems and she is as healthy as,i think u have to weigh up the pro and cons,hope this helped a little,whatever you deceide i wish you the best.
