  • Effectiveness
    None (for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 4 g Daily
Advice & Tips: The treatment is much easier than it appears at first. The process is easy, but untimely. It gets in the way of daily activities. I stopped because I believe I am on the placebo and I would like to try a new clinical trial.
Side effects: flatulence, burning sensation in eyes

Advice & Tips: I infused myself daily with rocephin through a port in my chest. i had to be so clean and careful. and i couldn't shower for a week(until the nurse cameto change the needle). After 5 weeks of the drug through IV i started getting major pains in my side and ended up in the emergancy room getting my infected gall blader out. Common side effect of the drug apparently. Ive stopped lyme treatment currently.
