Hi. Good to hear from you again. Colby hasn't used the Avonex in almost 2 years. He only used it for a year, then had one of the worse exacerbations he has ever had, so he was switched to Rebif. The Rebif was really hard on him and caused such severe depression that he could not function properly, so he is only taking LDN. Dr. Scott elected not to increase it at this time, since he is doing so well on it at 3 mg. He said we were having "perfect" results from it, and there was no need. This confused me somewhat since I have always heard that 4.5 was the optimum dosage for LDN and MS, but he's the doc...
I have always been told that you should not take the interferons with LDN, that their actions and indications more or less counteract each other, and you will benefit from neither. This is understandable, since they work in 2 totally opposite ways. But, I have heard of others using both, so who knows???
Anyway, my son continues to do fantastic on the LDN. We have truly seen the changes since school started back a month ago, more so than we already were. I knew that his thought process had improved and he didn't seem as forgetful as he was while on the interferons, but his grades are really proving that the "brain fog" has lifted. He's doing better than he has since before his diagnosis 3 years ago - he was a straight A student prior to the diagnosis and hasn't been since, but I believe he will be this year.
So glad you are having the success you are having with LDN. I hope your friend sees the same results you and my son have seen! If he/she continues to feel poorly, they might check around on the compounder they are using. I have heard that the filler and the expertise of the compounder can make all the difference in the world. Please keep in touch. Hope you're having a wonderful week.
