Hi Pat. As you know I started taking OLE and had good results for starters. Ran out of them and had to wait for regional centre to get more in from Major City. They have arrived today but by now, and after Flu & Pnuemonia shots I have come down with "something". Very sore throat, cough, bringing up disgusting phlem through the night & early morn, very weak etc etc and have been just about spending all my time in bed or lying down. Saw Dr yesterday and he put me on Calvulin Duo which is Amoxylin and Potassium. They certainly made me feel a bit better for starters but right now I am feeling like I am rotten inside and nauseus. I don't undertand Herxing but maybe this is the internal fight with the bug I have. My question to you is, how long do you keep taking OLE or is it just a permanent thing once you start? I am going by train to see the rhuemy' in the big smoke on Friday if I am well enough. I will have the opportunity to purchase a supply of OLE down there so would like your opinion.Love Ozgran.
