Tysabri and antibiotics

Hi, everyone. I have to admit, I know very little about Tysabri, so I came to ask you a question for a friend who is on it. He isn't a computer guy and he doesn't know who to ask, so I offered to put this on the board.

He's been on Tysabri for about seven months and is happy with it. He also wants to start on the Wheldon antibiotic protocol, but my prescribing doctor ...

Hi everyone. I'd like to get some feedback about Provigil. Has anyone taken it for fatigue? My girlfriend is having what we think is a relapse. She was very fatigued for a few days, then felt better, but is very fatigued again today. I know she's really sick of it. The doctor gave her a sample of Provigil but she has yet to try it. She has relapsing/remitting and is on Copaxone, if that matters. ...

Two weeks post Rituxan

For those of use who don't know me, I was diagnosed PPMS in May of 2003. At that time I symptoms were primarily slight weakness in my right leg. Now, five and half years later, my right arm and leg are profoundly ...

Low sex drive - dryness


Just out of curiosity, anyone else out there who has no other symptoms except for vaginal dryness and low sex drive? I've been reading a lot on the subject but still not sure if it's MS or something else. Can you have no symptoms (and no change for 3 years) with low sex drive and dryness in down there? I know you can based on the articles I've been reading. What about the people ...

Hicy/Tovaxin combination

I have been thinking about hicy and Tovaxin in combination. I know this is hypothetical but what are the thoughts of others about this approach.

Let's say you give a bag of blood and have your t-cells put aside for vaccine then go through with the hicy protocol. When it's time to get vaccinations for everything why not get a dose of your Tovaxin vaccine also.

I started to think about epitope shift but it ...

Everyone’s different

Why does everyone respond different to all the drugs, from one extreme to the other? There is no common denominator we all try everything and occasionally we find something that helps weather its goats milk or vitamins or whatever, how is it possible that this happens?
