  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Do not take all drugs listed at same time. Am on "pulse therapy" with antimacrobials. Do not take coq10 when on Mepron/malarone. Take Florastor probiotic 2x's a day to fight c.diff & other probiotics. Also take FiberSmart, DigestSmart, & slippery elm, marshmallow root for GI regularity. Drink at least 4 cups green tea daily. CDC confirmed lyme positive in 2010 (September), was bit in May of same year. Had psychiatric & cognitive dysfunction immediately following rash. Further testing show active infection in brain - neuro-lyme dx'd.

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Had my gallbladder removed, and started having bad cramping and diarrhea. lost a lot of weight. started the cholestyramine and it seems to be working well, but I now have extreme throat dryness. If this is caused from the Rx is there anything I can take to stop the dryness, dont want to quit the medicine since it seems to be working so well

  • Joint and muscle pain and stiffness started one week before remicade treatment and was gone 8 hours after treatment. 4 weeks later pain and stiffness returned in one day all at once. 3 weeks until next treatment . Mornings are better after some stretching, by the end of the day I can barely walk. Also fatigue, I have trouble sleeping also from the pain.
