Jerry- good link, was I on key with the trumpet?, I had my breasts radiated...so hopefully I was only a 'flat', note, but look 'sharp'-LOL (I could keep you abreast of that situation, too).

Purg- what can I say, I hope nobody jumps throught this thread and takes those words out of context....do you know what I'm sayin'? LOL

(I will find out what this costs, just for kicks...my inquisitiveness peaks)

Thanks for pointing that out....Still good to see new choices, not real pleasing to see whom likely benefits more than the patients. Keto works very similarly to this, maybe not as well or as potent...cost of Ketoconazole is very cheap (www.northdrugstore.com search)...as low as $130 for 100 ct or 200mg (generic). Patients can do low dose or high dose Keto and usually prednisone is recommend to use along with or another similar drug.

Guess which ones the Hospitals might start using?????
