Blood pressure pill could help treat multiple sclerosis, claims scientist.
Aw geez...it's Lisinopril. I just filled out a med history for my new prescription plan yesterday and noted it as my only definite
drug allergy. Of course
Lisinopril is good for MS. I'm allergic
to everything that's good for MS.
I felt perfectly healthy the day of my dx - until I started trying to "treat" it with supplements & stuff.
I have adverse reactions to almost all Omega 3s, (some severe, like from fish oil, walnuts, flaxseed oil, shellfish), some problems with vitamin D (and a few others), and had an immediate bowel/bladder improvement when I stopped taking vitamins altogether for awhile. I generally liked LDN, but I progressed to a cane halfway through my year of taking it.
Drug companies should use me to detect whether treatments will possibly be effective for MS and deserve further study. Maybe if they find something that kills me it will be the CURE for MS in everyone else.
Here's a hint...my most recent adverse drug reaction was to Benicar. Within a month or so it had changed my personality so severely that even my boss was concerned.
Here's a link to another article about the study on UK MS Society website.
