About Me – Medication

Photobucket

Since everyone tends to ask what kind of medication I am currently on I though I would post a section going over it. Now this may need to be updated often as I am always changing things up but more than likely I will explain that all to you if you message me or post a comment because I am not sure how often I will be able to update.

Anyways as you can see I am building up my own personal pharmacy here (lol) and this is after I got rid of a bunch of medication… What you can’t see in the picture are all the needles I no longer take… As much as I hate it, medication is part of my life. Prescription pills, pain killers, supplements, and needles. I have more pills on hand than most senior citizens I would imagine. I don’t take that all at once but I do take a lot… Although compared to others with MS it’s probably not that much because I am trying to cut out everything I can but still, for a 22 year old? Too much.

So let us go over my current cocktail,
I am not going to list the amounts because that changes way to often:

Citalopram – 40mg/Day
Nuvgil – 150mg

    Matt,

    What meds have you taken historically? I've read you were on and off Tysabri and LDN. It seems you've tried many but only for a short period of time. I think it's important that we stick with one long enough to know if it's working or not.

    Hi Matt,

    Have you looked into the diet protocol promoted by Dr. Terry Wahls at all? I have been implementing her suggestions since April, and I have not experienced any symptoms since.

    Her suggestions also led me to get a food allergy test done – apparently I am allergic to pretty much anything pre-made due to corn and soy being in almost everything processed.

    That is what I hear, I avoid it, look into leaky gut, do some reading, decide for yourself, but it has to do with Milk proteins being similar to Myelin proteins.

    Matt why do you no longer take sterioids? How does Acthar work? I took solumedrol for a flare and quickly learned I am very allergic to it.

    I am going on Tysabri and you can't take imuno suppressive drugs on top. ACTH is a natural hormone produced that tells the adrenal glands to produce more cortisol, or, natural steroids.
