Cinnamon Pills

Having a heck of a time with no sex drive at all. Only 37 years old. On Tysabri and MS is pretty well under control at this time. My mom gave me some cinnamon pills for my blood sugar, and wow, they seemed to work to awaken my sex drive. Is this normal? Is it harmful to be on cinnamon pills having MS?

I do not know of any reason why you couldn't take the cinnamon pills.

Hey I have some cinnamon pills but I see the Doc said he sees no reason not to take them...so my husband struggles with blood sugar and my question is did they have any beneficial effect on your blood sugar? How much and how often do you take them?
Thanks!

Two pills in the morning with breakfast. I have only taken them a couple of times, but my mother is taking them for her blood sugar. She had read they can be beneficial for MS inflamation, so she gave me some to try.
