I once read that the use of this supplement might be helpful in slowing progression and I also know that it is expensive. I read somewhere, and I thought it was on the ALS Association site but I can't find it, that the manufacturer will sell this to ALS patients at half price. Has anyone heard of this?

Thanks!

Looking at the cost efficiency side of things, if you can't afford the outrageous prices for CoQ10, you might look at tocotrienols, which are a lot cheaper. There's been no study to date on tocotrienols and ALS, but there is interesting info regarding them and neuroprotection.

Does anyone know how many milligrams to take daily of the CO Q 10? I think it should be a higher than normal dose. thanks

Hi Linda,
The doc at the ALS clinic has my husband on 100 mg. of CoQ10 three times a day, as well as 400 to 800 IU of vit. E, 1000 to 2000 mg. of vit.C, a multi vit. and 5mg. of creatine a day. Just be sure to check with the doc first.
Linda (me too!)

My husband's nuero has him on 1400 mg daily. I have heard of people taking 1600 mg daily. I appreciate the post on how to find it cheaper.. the stuff is pricey!
