To this day I have met about
a dozen or so men who have been on "Keto" as it is commonly referred to. None have had more than a temporary effectiveness. All were informed that would likely be the result. I was also informed that taking the drug with certain citric drinks (grapefruit juice for example) would break down its effectiveness. All were able to tolerate it well but that there is a class of patient that does not tolerate it at all. I'll let the few guys here tell their stories with it. David E (FLHW), here at this site would best be able to describe his experience with it, but he was able to get about
12 months on it I believe before it became ineffective.. Davids case is very advanced but he is now on DES and having much better success.
