There has been a study released saying Mefenamic acid cures alzheimers disease in mice. Has anyone here tried this drug?

I would like to find out a way to get this and try it. Of course, no doctor would prescribe this for me.

The article states among other things:

"Plans for clinical human trials are already at an early stage, with scientists working on a proof-of-concept for human neuroinflammation."

It could be years before they "start" trials on humans.

I took it for headaches and it works wonders. There's one available under the brand name ponstel. Hopefully it works as well for Alzheimers in humans!

Not to be silly, but i think it's prescribed for "that time of the month" type stuff and migraines. You could say you've taken it for migraines in the past. I'd say the brand name... tongue

Since I heard that medicine maybe can reverse the Alzheimer's disease symptoms, I rushed to get some to try illegally (means not prescribed by a doctor's ), it's been six months since then, I did feel the medicine does help relieve some symptoms of the Alzheimer's disease by some degree in some aspects, like numbers, logistics and reactions but not in name recognitions or certain kind of memories, IN ALL, it does helped me a lot compare with my poor wife, she's getting worse almost daily and refuse to take the medicine with me; although more research/trial for human use is underway, it could be years before it can reach a conclusion and prescribed to patients, with no help available (no prescription can be obtained for the Alzheimer's disease at this time), I volunteered myself to try it and it proved positive at least so far so good, if someone would like to know more about this medication, please leave your response, I will more then happy to discuss with you on this post publicly! Hope the researcher can finish the trial and make good for all the suffered people!
