  • repeated quizzing done on 2,830 cases
  • annoyingly, I don’t get this journal so all can say if among various measures tested mean reductions were 2.8-4.6/10 reduction of symptoms

Comment – I haven’t seen this high before; studies I have seen show a more marginal reduction in pain – maybe 1.5/10 most. I suspect results looked good because what was left to study was a group of responders – those that did not do well discontinued use and weren’t counted.
