Peripheral Neuropathy

Nov 27, 2003

Started getting numbness etc in both feet before Anti Retroviral treatment. Are there any known cures especially with vitamins to treat and resuscitate the nerves?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Getting off ddc, ddi and d4t is best if your are starting to feel the symptoms (a neurologist can diagnose it) Acetyl-L-carnitine at 2000-3000 mg/day is showing some promise in small studies.Talk to your doctor about this.
