Fluvoxamine & Tollovid Updates + Vedicinals 9
Let’s get right into it.
Fluvoxamine – I’ve been on Fluvoxamine for almost 17 months now. Originally, I worked my way up slowly to 100mg (50mg/50mg) per day. I’m now on a dose of 50 mg (25mg/25mg) per day. At 100mg, I felt it was causing some neurological side effects, namely heart pounding, even though it was helping me immensely at the same time. At 50mg, I do not notice that so much. It’s still very helpful for my neck pain/inflammation and my brain inflammation/fog. At one point 50mg would not have been sufficient, but at this point, 2 years & 7 months into this, it is. Very happy I decided to take this. It’s prevented me a lot of grief, cognitive dysfunction, and probably neurological weakness along the way. I’ll be even happier when I can slowly wean off. I’ve tried a few times, but was not ready (head would inflame and cognitive dysfunction would come on).
Tollovid – For 4.5 months I’ve been taking Tollovid Max on and off, mostly on. It’s been largely taken by me at the full dose (3 4x a day). Throughout this period I’ve experimented with taking different doses, and not taking it at all. The last week or so I’ve been taking 3 2x a day, which is working well for me. There is a noticeable difference in brain power and energy when I’m on it, as opposed to when I’m off it for a few days. It’s been helpful for my Long Haul COVID as well as my Acute Cvoid when I was likely reinfected by BA.5, more than 2 months ago. It’s hard to say how long I will need to be on it. Reinfection really makes it difficult to judge. No noticeable side effects (other than stool discoloration), but I will keep my eye on things as some have discussed potential liver issues. They are unconfirmed, and were later resolved in the cases I’ve heard of. Again I think it can be hard to judge what’s causing what sometimes as reinfection and vaccination are such a large influences.
Vedicinals 9 – Just started Vedicinals 9 about a week ago. The Backstreet Boys Rock Your Body song comes to mind because … it rocked my body. At first, maybe for half a day, I noticed an energy boost from 25 ml. Then I took the 2nd dose, ughhh. Neuro, chest, weakness, and GI all flared or increased. Brain cognition was horrible. I tried to endure at the full dose 50 ml (25ml/25ml) per day, but after 2 days of that misery, I had to stop. It was hard to function at all. Next I took a 2 day rest before I decided to try half the dose (12.5mg/12.5mg) per day. That went better, but the side effects were still too much after 2 days of that. After I take a break I will likely try 1/4 the dose of the total typical daily dose. It feels like a herxheimer reaction to me, but I’m trying to get an answer on that. May have to incorporate some form of detoxing. Good news is that the side effects wear off mostly in a few days. I’ve experienced something that I felt was somewhat similar when I took very strong, concentrated herbs for Lyme and coinfections. Byron White Formulas, A-BIo in particular, gave me an outstanding, even worse than this, herx from just 1 drop. In theory, it’s a good thing, but you want a herx to be bearable and not overloading. Before I restart Vedicinals 9, I’m going to reach out to the company and ask them some more questions: regarding my reaction, some questionable ingredients, etc.
More updates to come in the future as long as Monkeypox or Polio doesn’t kill me!
