Small trial suggests the scans might help, but experts aren't so sure

Hello all, my friend is selling different products. She was telling me about OPC-3 and all the good things that is does. I have muliple myeloma, now is remission, had it since 2006. I just was told by my neurology doctor I have a small case of neuropathy in my feet. They put me on Gabapentin. I take 200 mg. each night. Just started them 2 days ago. They seem to work with the tingling in the feet and leg pains. I am also on vit. D3, 81 mg of aspirin and 2.5 mg of Lisinopril. Has anyone used this OPC-3, if so how is it working. I would any input on this product. I don't want it to mess up the remission stage I am in or take something that will harm me. Thank you and keep well.

This product has extracts of Grape Seed, Pine Bark, Citrus and Red Wine. You may find looking each ingredient up on Memorial Sloan Kettering's Herb Encyclopedia helpful.
If you are looking for help for neuropathy you may want to investigate Glutamine and Vitamin B12. A visit with an Oncology Certified Registered Dietitian may also be useful.
Hope this helps.

Hi, I know your post was some time ago but I thought I'd let you know my son has been taking OPC3 for a couple of years now for an autoimmune disease. He was on it for only 8 weeks when we were told he was in remission. He's been in remission ever since. I truly believe it works. Our alternative course of treatment was a life time of immune suppressant drugs, chemo, surgery and tube feeding. I opted to try alternative medicines first. Thankfully for us it worked and we havn't looked back.
All the best.
