Title

Taking Melatonin to reduce EDSS level

Body

I was reading some research articles on high doses of melatonin helping PPMS patients reduce disability over a four year period. link is https://www.researchgate.net/publication/270052922

Neena, I take 3mg most nights as a sleep aid. I can't somehow imagine taking 300mg, but then the report says that this woman did take it. I must admit to trying 4 capsules one day, so 12mg, but I felt horrible and dopey.  I will have to look into this a bit more.

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

clearly that 300 mg must be a mistake. For now Sonal has decided not to take melatonin. I read the article on melatonin for which you had given a link

I am 76 years old. My daughter-in-law was diagnosed with MS and we are all very keen for her to start this new antibiotic treatment. We hope to be able to do this in the next couple of weeks by finding a doctor willing to deal with any issues like reactions that may crop up. My daughter-in-law is 43 years old.

I have been an active poilitical journalist most of my life and have felt for a long time that there must be a cure out there for MS which the medical community has largely ignored. I am very excited by the Wheldon protocol.

Neena, I am glad you saw that: somebody was certainly mixing up their mg with their mcg!!

If poor Sonal had followed their instructions, her children might have thought she had gone mad! 3mg is more than enough for me!

Very irresponsible for a research paper on a qwebsite/internet to get mg mcg mixed up. Can prove to be fatal!

This page might give some indication of what might happen with such high doses of melatonin: you could almost think that the Spanish researchers were mixing up their milligrams with their micrograms.

This one lady seems to be the only person in the trial or the only one who completed the trial.

Reading this page about basically recreational use of melatonin, it seems rather silly to take such large amounts, but on the other hand, I was lucky that by taking CAP antibiotics, my EDSS improved so much without needing to try anything like that.

I was wondering if Sonal should also take melatonin along with abx/? By the way she started Roxy yesterday April 17 so taking that twice a day along with Doxy twice a day. No serious adverse reaction so far.

Some fellow MSers that I know are currently undergoing a trial of massive doses of simvastatins.  Massive doses of this or that seems to be the order of the day.  Far be it for me to believe that it is symptomatic of well-paid experts clutching at straws. 🙄

Certainly clutching at straws with any of the statins!!
