Hello all, I am still here after my first month of Disulfiram. For me, this has been an experience that has helped me with some issues and I believe added some issues. I will explain here.
Before I started Disulfiram, I am sure I was starting a relapse of Bartonella, a remnant of my Lyme issues, and I felt as long as I had the opportunity to give this new disulfiram treatment (possible Tick-borne disease treatment) a try. I did that. I was very happy with the results I got on 75 mg for two weeks. I am now free of those issues such as creaking of the neck, nerve twitching or facial tick.
I then went to 125 mg's and I found I didn't do much better but developed nerve synapses that I have experienced in my past. I found taking my Loratidine/claritins active ingredient calmed this down. This told me I am experiencing an allergic reaction. So then I decided to take a day off before I move onto 250 mg”s. I went through a depression for about two days and I was very tired with heavy legs. I shut down another day off DSF.
I am stopping my therapy of DSF and going eventually back to what has been working for me. I chose DSF because I didn't want to always depend on Reverting back to antibiotics if necessary. But with Stevia, e-oils, a doctor that is listening and will help. I do not see where I can continue this DSF treatment for myself. This is only for me.
I believe in the Low and slow method for DSF. This gave me the opportunity to way this out as I increased the dosages. But I have found it to be more than this worn-out body wants to challenge.
This is not a negative or positive for DSF therapy. But I am now sure it is not a cure-all for us all.
I hope this helps,
