side effects question

My 17 year old daughter has had chronic fatigue for about 6 months everyday. We are considering the CPni treatment. Will the side effects cause her to miss school (its already hard for her to get through the school week)? Or can we go carefully enough so that it won't be so bad for her?  Also, has anyone heard of problems after treatment is done from so much antibioticsi?

She starts her senior year

She starts her senior year of highschool in seven weeks. So I was thinking of her trying it now before school starts. She had a hard enough time getting through the last half of her junior year because of constant fatigue, so I don't want to make it any worse.

She starts her senior year

She starts her senior year in high school in about 7 weeks. I was thinking if we started now, at least she could try it before she goes back to school and see how it goes.  She has a hard enough time getting through school with the fatigue, so I don't want this to make it worse.

She probably won't have as hard a time as she would if she had had CFSi for years.  I have MSi, though, so someone with a more intimate knowledge of her situation may come along.

However, If she uses the Wheldon Protocol, she may find it very tolerable.  Has she begun NACi, some of the other supplementsi, and checked her Vit D level?  These things are very beneficial to anyone who is on this.

She has not started any

She has not started any supplementsi or NACi. I'm not sure what protocol this Dr. uses. He says its the method used by Dr. Stratton. 

I have had ME/CFSi since a

I have had ME/CFSi since a bout of flu in 1979 and my life has been aweful because of it.  In those days I knew nothing about a long term antibiotic protocol so I would think it has to be worth giving it a try.

One thing to mention is to ensure she protects her gut with good daily probiotics and natural antifungals if necessary.

Hope you can find a good doctor to help guide you and keep a check on liver enzymes.  My doctor is treating me for what she calls "stealth pathogens" and there is evidence for these as a problem in ME/CFS.

Good Luck.


ME/CFSi, adrenal insufficiency low dose steroids + flurdrocortisone, thyroid disease Armoujr + 25 mcg T3, 25 mcg T4, 20mg Propoananol, 200 Doxyi from 1/4/11, Azithro MWF from 1/6/11, Metroi 1st 5 day pulse 13/7/11

Can you recommend any

Can you recommend any specific natural anti fungals and the daily probiotic amount?  Thanks for the tips.

I have full blown chronic fatigue syndromei for 5 years. It is awful to say the least. Nothing has worked for me.  I will probably try the antibiotic treatment too. I don't want the fatigue my daughter has been having to turn into CFSi for her.
