Default Drug Trials

Hello, My doctor has suggested two drug trials and I am wondering if anyone has any knowledge or input about either of them. One is R-Pramipexole and the other is Talampanel. Of course there is always the chance that one could be in a placebo group.

Thanks,
Cari

Here are some links you may find useful. Talampanel seems to be pretty new, so there may be hope there. It seems that R-Pramipexole has been tried before, with no positive effect for ALS.
