  1. I think you might be referring to glutathione proliposome. I am not familiar with that variation, but I am with plain glutathione. I have had a general deficiency and reducing and minimizing it has had a beneficial effect. I say this with the caveat that glutathione is an important part in a chain of enzymes and proteins that help your immune system, and weaknesses in the chain at various points can neutralize what otherwise is a big improvement in a particular kind of helpful substance, like glutathione. I think it's too complicated to assess this in a forum like this, but if you're willi
  2. It seems to me that the meds you're taking are helping to some extent but not the underlying "driving" function for your "counting" thing. I think this is good because it isolates the counting thing, and that can be addressed with behavioral therapy. In this kind of therapy, you allow your self to do the counting or whatever things but under supervision so that you can find ways to break out of the cycle that is going on, whether it's 3 kisses, or 10 lock/unlock checks, or 5 shoelace retie cycles. The more commercial side of this therapy is called "Cognitive Behavioral Therapy" (CBT), which
  3. Hi, Amy-- Sorry to hear about your flareup. I think you might be having some kind of allergic reaction, which is one of the more prevalent of side-effects of Adderall and similar kinds of meds; see http://www.drugs.com/Adderall/. To be safe, you should contact your prescribing doc right away; if you can't then maybe you should contact your regular doc to see if s/he could verify whether you're having a reaction to the new med. In any event, try to have a Happy New Year!

  5. I have read that carnosine can be beneficial. There's a thread on this in the Forum: http://www.latitudes.org/forums/index.php?...9185entry9185
  6. See http://home.howstuffworks.com/vitamin-b2.htm for a table of B vitamins overall. For B6, I've seen various recommendations. - The USDA RDA is 2 mg/da. See also http://www.hoptechno.com/book29d.htm. BTW: supplements might not help replace what you can get through regular food sources, esp. green veggies. - One website http://www.lef.org/protocols/prtcl-126a.shtml says: "Vitamin B6 is required for almost all metabolic processes involving amino acids, including the decarboxylation of 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) formed from L-tryptophan (TRP).14 All three of these substances are
  7. PANDAS is a relatively "new" diagnostic category, so there is not as much literature as other related disorders. For starters, see: http://www.childadvocate.net/PANDAS_treatment.htm "Introduction: There has been a subset of young children who have been noted to abruptly develop Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and/or tic disorders, such as Tourette’s Disorder, in association to a recently documented Group A Beta-hemolytic Streptococcal (GABHS) infection. It was found that these children have a condition termed Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococc

  11. Re Glutamag: Here's some results from a web search: * Positive result: http://brain.hastypastry.net/forums/showthread.php?t=68499 * Looks like same person posting: http://www.latitudes.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=1117 * Same here, too (different name, same post content; hmmm....) http://forums.bellaonline.com/showflat.php...=0#Post22790911 * Looks like a weight-loss alternative: http://www.enzyme-weight-loss.com/why.htm A number of other in various foreign languages.

  12. Several months ago, I saw an ad for "Glutamag" and inquired about, but it hadn't been approved by the FDA. I just got an update: "the FDA has finally approved sales of Glutamag in the USA and we are happy to inform you that you can now order Glutamag from our distributor in New York. You can either buy Glutamag by going to: http://www.wbuytv.com/product/health/glutamag.htm or by calling WBUY Television's order line, toll free on: 1-800-643-9289" Do you know anything about this particular compound or can you/somebody comment on it generically? The following is a quote from the U

  14. ad_ccl -- There is a condition called "ocular migraine" (I have it! : ( that sounds very similar. There are numerous references on the web by that name. They are sometimes called "ocular auras". For a graphic you can ask your son about, see http://www.eyeguys.net/ocularmigraine.html. Headache is not necessarily associated with it. It can "wax and wane". Francois -- "Floaters" (I have these, too! : ( do not necessarily go away, get worse or turn into glaucoma or cataracts; they are fairly common. So far the most damage they have caused is that I have hit my fingers on somethings
  15. Dizziness and drowsiness are listed as known side-effects of Strattera and Zoloft, and discontinuation of use is recommended if either is a persistent problem. Increased concentration of norepineprhine can cause these side-effects, also hormonal (esp. if peri-menopausal), allergic reactions (auto-immune), and neural (fight-or-flight). I had these in various ways with various meds and have found that Wellbutrin XL was the best of the lot. It is a relatively mild antidepressant and has stimulant effects but is not a stimulant. But it's a med, and I think none is best if you can find a way t
