Due to the chronic neuropathy problem,
I want to know whether the acetyl L-carnitine or alpha lipoid acid ( ether or both ) could improve the neuropathy ? Or relieve pain ? Did someone use these medicine ? How is it ? Thank you!

Hello J
Thank for your sharing
But I still have a question that is how long do you take ALA ? Do you just take this when necessary or everyday ?

i took it everyday.
I have stopped taking it now for about a year or so because it had not been working for me. I had no relief of the neuro pain, and still don't,

i have tried ALA (1800 mg per day) and found no relief from it with burning neuropathy pain.

However that does not mean it may not work for you.

I have not tried the acetyl L-carnitine.
