New to Lipitor - So glad I found this chat board!

I am a 38 YO Public Health Doctor (DrPH) (Epidemiologist) who was diagnosed with MS 1 year after finishing my Doctorate in 1997. Was on copaxone for a while and solumedrol - which literally almost killed me. I've chosen to be med free for 3 years but am sadly watching this disease take its course and take control over my life.

Benefits of statins and/or LDN alongside abx

I am attempting to make a list of benefits felt by the number of people who are using LDN and/or statins in addition to as an antibiotic regime. I know quite a few people do and I know who some of you are, but I would like to know how much you think you have been helped by using more than one of these "alternative" regimes. Once I was diagnosed with SPMS of a very ...

Statin, Avonex, Liver, Presciption Question

This is a multiple part question.

Statins and Avonex have warnings about liver damage, does anyone think taking both is a serious health risk? Has anyone encountered problems taking both? Do we know more about the details of the risks to the liver and if they act in the same or different ways?

Has anyone found a neuro that would perscribe a statin? If you have low cholesterol, does that mean you can't get a ...
