Reply To: Alpha Lipoic Acid

I take alph lipoic acid, 300 mg twice a day. I am recovering from CIDP. It is impossible to tell whether it has any effect at all in any individual case. The efficacy can only be determined through a controlled study of large numbers of patients. Such a study is currently in progrss at Oregon State University, but I am not aware of any results having been reported.
