My Friend is suffering from Friedreich's Ataxia. I have just read and article on a Coenzyme Q10 analogue, idebenone and it's use in FA. however, I am not sure if it is available in SA, or if it is a good idea to use this drug in my friend's case. Please advise.

Nick, I have no idea what idebenone is. It might be that I know it by a different name, so if you can mail me the article at, I can have a look for you. Good luck.
