    Hi! I see that the drug Ampligen has just been approved as the first therapeatic drug for specifically treating CFS/ME in America. I also see that it's been used already for quite some time in canada. Since this is where I live, I'm suprised not to have heard of this drug before. Has anyone on this board, from Canada, tried this drug? What results did you have with it? Would love to learn more! Thanks! tamsyn

    Hi tamsyn,

    I am in Canada too and my CFS doctor mentioned Ampligen when I first got sick 15 yrs ago. The cost was prohibitive though (I think I remember something like $20000/mo. although that might be wrong. Whatever it was, I couldn't afford it.)

    He still thinks it would be worth a try although it has not been as successful as he thought it would be.

    I do remember some people on this board trying it with mixed results. I think that the symptoms all return when you stop it. I must look that up.
