Nicosan Fan Mail

This letter just brought it home for me...all the stress that I've been going through getting Nicosan to my dear users in the US. It's been difficult maintaining with all the business and economic setbacks both here and in Nigeria, but this note from a Nicosan user just reminded me why I love what I do!

I just wanted to let you know that i have been using Nicosan for a
month now. It has been very helpful. I have sickle cell anemia and
usually have crisis in the month of February when it gets cold in
Philadelphia but I was able to ward it off this year. I just ordered
another pack and I'm saving so I can order the pack of 12. Thanks so
much for introducing me to this drug. I am very excited for my future
now even though i have very few crisis, i am an athlete at heart and
hope i will be able to participate in the activities i love.

Awwwww! Keep doing your thang girl! And I hope Nicosan will keep enriching your life that way it has changed mine.

I'm wondering if anyone has had bad experiences with Nicosan. I started taking Nicosan in the fall of 2007. And then, out of the blue, I was sick in December of 2007, then in August and October of 2008. I stopped taking the Nicosan after I got out of the hospital in October, and so far, while I still have pain most days, I have not been back in the hospital. I stopped the Nicosan because I had never been that sick so frequently and thought that maybe it was having a bad effect. Have you heard of anyone else having a bad effect?

I should also say that I was a pretty healthy child growing up...I was "only" hospitalized a 3 times between the ages of 5 and 18 (and once was for pneumonia). At my four year college, I was hospitalized 3 times (after flying and swimming, so now I know those are crisis triggers for me). The hospitalizations since Dec. of 2007 have been "out of the blue" for me, which is why I stopped taking Nicosan. Maybe the sickling was just getting worse with age (I'm 23)?
