I was just wondering 2 things regarding people who are using delayed release phosphatidylcholine from KliniPharm in Germany:
1. how are you doing on it - are you having good results?
2. those who are using it, does your insurance cover it?

1) yes, it helps with keeping me in remission.
2) yes, my prescription provider covers it partially as a compound medication. My employer covers international pharmacies.

I stopped taking it a few weeks ago. I didnt really noticing anything from it but that doesnt mean it wouldnt work for others. I think that the coating they use on it might have upset things more than help.

Does anyone here have any information on this? I googled it but not a lot of information popped up.

Thanks :)

Hi Sibby,
the delayed release phosphatidylcholine we are referring to is from KliniPharm in Germany. Here is the link to their website explaining the enteric coated phosphatidylcholine (lecithin) that they compound
just click or scroll down to "pharmaceutical research". I believe in the "contact us" area of their website, they provide both a phone number and an email address for more info/to order. You do need a prescription for this. I hope this helps...if you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

Call them directly. They are slow to respond to emails but the pharmacist speaks good english.
