Counterfeit medication

I found this in the London Times, Saturday July 9th, 2005. So do be careful, especially people in Great Britain and other parts of Europe, where you buy your antibiotics from. Luckily the Canadian company first reported by GPlover would seem to be OK.

fatigue meds

I've taken Provigil. It didn't work for me at all.
I've been taking Amanatine for the last three years (100mg 3xday) and up until a month ago, it worked relatively well.

Now it's as if I'm not taking anything. Fatigue is always present.

Any ideas?

Another One on Dr. Wheldon Regimen

Hello, everybody!

I am a 47 y/o physician, who was diagnosed in November 2002, after having MS for 15 years. At that time I was hospitalized immediately following a horrible MRI. It showed a brain edema and an incredible load of the lesions. I was given IV Decadron, while the neurologists argued with the radiologist if it was a brain tumor or a severe encephalitis.

At the time of diagnosis I was a hopeless, miserable ...

not working?

I've been on rebif since april 30. I'm currently on the high dose 44. I'm handling the side effects pretty well, practically no flu like effects anymore. But it doesn't seem to be doing anything to the # of my attacks. I basically get an attack every 1 - 1.5 months. Most of them just give me numbness, with mild perm damage(fingers crossed that it stays that way). How long does Rebif take to work?, ...

Collaborative Initiative Focuses on Neurological Disease

I'm always happy to see the phrases "collaborative initiative" and "neurological disease" in the same sentence.

Better Brain Regimen

A few posts here have mentioned the regimen for MS in The Better Brain Book by Perlmutter.

I recently bought the book. I think its a useful reference. In addition to a discussion of key risks/impacts on brain function and how to minimize, it had a good “glossary” explaining the purpose of several key supplements.

The book has sections on specific brain disorders, including MS (others are stroke, vascular dementia, alzheimers, parkinsons, and ALS).

The ...

To our British Friends

Today, I just wanted to extend my thoughts and prayers to Sarah and other British MS friends. The attacks in London have brought back so many memories of the 9/11 attacks. Godspeed to all of you.

Link with asthma and chronic infections

An old but interesting piece about the link between mycoplasma and chlamydia species and chronic asthma, and by inference other chronic chest infections.

Another reason for the need of the return of the General Physician, I would have thought.
