    any body ever used this for viruses amantadine.. i was put on this by a lyme dr., it is rising my
    ast and my alt, even thou its in range...it has also affected my urea nitrogen, and my bun/creatinine ratio, i have email the dr, but he hasnt responded to me... i am not feeling him too much...maybe im just to impatient, and im still not feeling any better

    my lyme results show mostly IND's, he has not put me on antibiotics...and i really dont want to be on any...he talked about yeast, but i dont think he really knows how to handle yeast...anyone ever heard of a biamonte dr, that specialize in yeast, here in new york, and charge 240.00 for the first visit, , i am thinking about getting in touch with him...if i keep feeling drunk, and falling into walls.

    This site has one of the best explanations on how to do a food elimination diet. Many times it's a certain food that you are ingesting that causes that "drunk" feeling.

    http://www.ic-network.com/handbook/eliminationdiets.html

    Also, get your hormones tested. Low adrenal function contributes to candida and food allergy problems. My adrenal function was very low. I was not producing DHEA, and cortisol. After going on compounded hydrocortisone (bioidentical cortisol) my food allergies improved.

    I also nebulize glutathione which helps with MCS. You may want to record where and when those "drunk" feelings happen to see if there is a pattern. Sometimes it's an environmental exposure too.

    this med does have a good track record with cfs, I was thinking of trying it.
    How long have you been on it and can the dose be lowered?
    Have you noticed any positive effects?

    I tried it, but my body didn't like it. It is one of the older anti virals. I am now on Valtrex and much better.

    Munch is right about the adrenals. I didn't have a clue that was contributing to me being so sick until I started being treated for adrenal fatigue. After over a month, I am seeing some good changes.

    Good luck and take care,

    Sheila
