    Hope someone can help. I started on TF for CMV and EBV about 3 weeks ago. About 1 1/2 weeks ago I started to get nauseaus and migraines on a daily basis. Now I get this anyhow but usually like this. I'm trying to figure out if I'm herxing, if it's hormones, the weather, candida...I'm hoping it's herxing. Does anyone have experience with TF and herxing? ALso, did read your posts on pulsing so is that something I might want to try? I've reduced the TF dose some and am taking at night instead of a.m. to see if that helps. Thanks Jan. (I'm really sick from CFS so may be a few days to get back)

    Posing this question to the members of the Transfer Factor Board. There may be a lot more experience there.

    Love, Mikie

    Hi, Itook that brand and felt worse at first. For quite awhile actually. Felt fluish, allergies were worse, etc. I had to cut down the dose to 1/4 capsule, then upped it to 1/2 etc. I took it for about 3 months.
    Mikie is right about asking the TF board. Also For life has a phone number you can call on Thursday nights for people with FMS using TF. I called it and told them I couldn't take the normal dose and they said that was ok, and to take as little as I needed to to work up to it.
    If you want more info on TF for Life let me know. I had a friend who sold it and gave me the phone number for questions, etc. I'm sure I have it somewhere.
    Good Luck,

    I'm taking the TF I got from Immunesupport, the 100 plan I believe. I started with 3 caps a.m. then about 2 1/2 weeks in the migraines and nausea started. But so did high humidity. And I get them anyway so who knows. 2 days ago it dawned on me I could be herxing so I took 1 in a.m. and 1 in pm. Last night i took 2 in pm and today it was a battle but so far no problems.

    I would love to speak to someone who knows TF (TF Board) just to see. I'm lucky in that I have no FM. Gets exhausting trying to figure everything out all the time. Thanks all. Jan

    Hi...I thought since i felt so bad by taking the TF in the a.m. that I would switch to pm. I only took one capsule last night and still had major migraine and nausea again today, that's 12 days in a row, and Zomig is not working. I'm going to stop and see if that's it. I have it in the fridge and have enough for a 3 month course but I have no RX benefits and migraine meds are outrageous so may have to stop. If someone can give me a number, that'd be great...i did buy my stuff from Health Resources. Also, what is cytalog? Thanks.
