- I have completed a 2 month course of artesunate.
- I have finished a 2 ½ month course of colloidal silver.
- I have taken inosine for 2 months.
- I have taken Proboost (thymic protein A) for 2 ½ months.
I haven’t experienced any notable improvement in CFS symptoms despite being on this ‘cocktail’ of antivirals and immunomodulators for the past 2 months. During the 2 months I experienced what I suspect is a pulsed herxheimer effect. This entailed having a runny nose and a heavy cold that lasted for 2 days and occurred every 10 days (approximately 6 times over the 2 month period.)
I rarely experienced heavy colds prior to starting the antiviral and immunomodulator treatment. I will take note of if I continue to have them after completing the treatment. This will give me some sort of indication regarding whether the colds were spurious or related to the antivirals in the possible form of a herxheimer effect.
I will continue to take the inosine and Proboost until the recommended dosing period is over however have finished the artesunate and colloidal silver
