Question about acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, cog function

Has anyone had any luck using acetylcholinesterase inhibitors like razadyne/ aricept to improve cognitive function?

My Doc prescribed razadyne, but insurance won't cover it unless I get a DX of Alzheimers. I'm not willing to do that. I saw and article not long ago where that dx. followed someone around on health records.

I'd be willing to try it out of pocket if it works.

I do so miss my brain....

Another one for copaxone!

I finally saw the right doctor! And he has recommended copaxone (apparently beta interferons are not a great idea if you have a history of epilepsy & depression).

I see the MS nurse on tuesday next week and we'll see what happens from there - if anybody has any advice / thoughts / knowledge to share I would appreciate it.

Copaxone Poison

I was misdiagnosed with multiple sclerosis instead of the correct diagnosis of brainstem stroke. I had been on Copaxone for the four years of my misdiagnosis. About the fifth week of taking Copaxone, I developed a almost constant head tremor. (Dystonic No-No) It appeared as if I was shivering or repetitively shaking my head no very quickly. My quack neuro said that it was a symptom of my MS. I tried a variety of meds ...

Anyone taken this drug before?

Day 5 was today. I was aware I could go from 100mg to 200mg anywhere from 4-7 days in.

Well, my facial pain was terrible today, so I took 100mg upon waking (I take 100mg in the evening). My gosh. My face feels NUMB LOL.

Is this normally what the drug does? I have very little experience with it. My mouth pain went away for the most part at least!

Question about IVSM

I had my 1st 3 day course of IVSM, 1000 mg/day, It's been a week, am I supposed to feel different by now?

I thought I had a moment or 2 of mental clarity the other day, and I got all excited, but today I'm back to walking into walls.

I'd love to hear everyone's experiences...

Infections and Transplants

I was going to post this on the hicy forum but decided to put it here as it is speculative and only tangentially related to treatment with hicy.

I wondered about permanently latent virii like:
-HSV1 (cold sores on the lips)
-HHV6 lives in you forever after contacting it as a kid (we all have it)
-EBV lives in your b cells forever, and possibly the marrow

those are all viruses that the vast majority ...
