    Very hard to take
Dosage: 35 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This is our first time taking SC at night. In addition to .75mg/kg of SC plus kosher salt, we added .3ml of lemon juice. Hope this makes a difference. To date we have seen no gains from this. We will do our best to see if we have seen an loss of functionality; perhaps we have not lost anything since starting treatment in December.

Advice & Tips: Completed fifth day and final day and noticed that I am not yawning as much. Perhaps able to breath better but not sure. I am certain this started after my first day of taking Sodium Chlorite of this round. I am only going five days on and 16 days off, so this is my last day.

  • Adherence

  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 35 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: We started up today our SC treatment. This time we are reducing the dose back to .75mL/kg with no lemon juice added. The pH for the solution is just at or a little above 7.0. Excess saliva appears to be the initial side effect, no nausea as reported the last round.

  • Effectiveness
    None (for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)

    Moderate (fatigue, muscle aches, muscle twitching (fasciculations), headaches, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, body odor, nausea, dizziness with hypotension upon standing)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 59 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I am going to stop treatment after five rounds. The side effects coupled with the pain in my body out of not taking my antioxidants is too much. I think I may have had to high of a dose at 59mg (1.25mg/kg). In 16 days I will resume at 35mg (.75mg/kg). Certainly if anyone has any suggestions let me know.

Advice & Tips: To this point, day 5 of treatment, osc is looked upon as a "have to" then a "want to". I am tired of being nauseas and not eating for an extended period of time. I miss my healthy chocolate which is high in antioxidant, which is why I am avoiding it.
