    Hi @mountaintom it's not approved by the NHS, although has been in the US as far as i'm aware.

    Hi @mountaintom,
    Only know of it through reading.
    According to the company the side-effects include cough and asthma and caution in use with people with asthma.
    One study suggesting asthma occurs about 40% more often in TIDs than the general population (4.42 per 1000 vs 6.49 per 1000) ( Medicine (Baltimore) 2015 Sept 94 (36) Can any health professionals comment ??
    So I am unsure how many would be suitable to try it and the cost is still unknown.

    I believe @tim2000s has tried it?

    THere was another user who posted recently about using it, but I now can't remember their name for the life of me.
