  1. This last tip throws me a bit. The testing appears to be a kit that uses saliva that you do yourself. It appears that the results are sent directly to me. Although our world is flawed with privacy issues I am not sure how his genetic results would impact our insurance. It sounds like after getting the results, I would have to ( and possibly a LLMD) figure out the needed supplements and start low and slow.
  2. I will look up the testing you did. Your experience sounds just like ours with so many similar reactions to abx. The worst thing is the length of time we kept him on the augmentin. Whatever damage that did does not seem reversible and to add that issue to the fact that it's October again and things are escalating dramatically... Scary really. We almost did hospitalize my son this past week.. Knowing they do not believe in any of these issues...to avoid that, our local doctor has put him on a mood stabilizer... We know that is not going to get to the root of this, but desperate times. As for you being new to all this... I can't believe how much everyone posting knows. I now have to do cyber school with my son and manage him constantly...leaves little time to actually research for the solutions. Thank you. Will do the testing.
  3. It certainly sounds like we need to check to see if the micro plasma that we had a year ago is still a factor AND it seems that the script for the supplement had doses that would be way too high. Plus, we started giving one a day never thinking that they would create all our current issues. After things calm a bit I will start with super low doses and add in gradually. I also think you are right in that the p5p seems to be another supplement he can't tolerate.
  4. L methylfolate 3mg, pridoxal 5 35 mg and methyl cobalamin 2 mg. Sounds like L methylfolate was way too high.
  5. Great! Just found a site that helps locate a LLMD. Thank you tons.
  6. Thank you. Our doctor did use Igenix lab BUT I am not sure he is keen to the behavioral changes the abx cause. It was never suggested that I start antibiotics slowly. As for a LLMD, another mom and I are desperate for a doctor that believes in Pandas and is an expert on lyme. I'm not even sure what an LL stands for... will google to find.
  7. Thank you. It will be so hard to get the dosage right but will start out very slowly. Just wish things would calm down so we could get a baseline first. We do b12 injections and have for years but just found out about the mutations last month.
  8. I apologize... This is the script our doctor tried. 1 capsule per day (what is this?) (verify) Metanx is a medical food made by Pamlab that contains L-methylfolate (vitamin B9), methylcobalamin (vitamin B12) and pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (vitamin B6). It is a vitamin B supplement.
  9. Testing showed two mutations for MTHFR. The doctor said if we notice a change with the mentax it's a good thing. It was not a good thing. I'm sure the dosage was too high.
  10. Testing showed two mutations for MTHFR. The doctor said if we notice a change with the mentax it's a good thing. It was not a good thing. I'm sure the dosage was too high.
  11. My son DOES have two mutations for MTHFR. Our doctor started us on Mentax... Had to stop it after 1 1/2 weeks because behaviors were through the roof... Panic attacks, running, insomnia to name a few. We were giving b12 but I have even stopped that temporarily. Feeling like we are in quite a mess and can't get out.
  12. Thank you for sharing. We gave our son augmentin a year ago. Behaviors were worse than any pandas episode, but the doctor insisted bacteria die off. He has periods of doing better, but he has never been the same. Now it's October again and we are going downhill again. We are checking his micro plasma level but there must be more going on.
  13. The doctor is sending a script for lab work and honestly, I hope he finds something. Your responses have been super helpful. It was comforting to know I am not the only one that did IVIG and have not seen the improvement I hoped for. After reading these, I am thinking we did not keep my son on his antibiotics long enough. That would be our fault more than the doctor's. I know many speak of herxing. I am not convinced that is what we saw, but the behaviors became so serious from various antibiotics that we would stop/change them. My son is tall and his safety was literally at stake. It continues to be a severe issue and we are currently home bound. Anxious to get the labs done. Thank you.
  14. Thank you. I have asked for a script to have labs done again to see what his levels are at this point. The solu medrol was clearly a mistake for us in many ways. Thank you.
  15. I have made numerous calls to vets, whom have made calls to check, and have been told that strep passes through dogs, should they be exposed, but they don't actually carry strep as humans do.
