Peripheral Neuropathy - L-Carnetine
      10/29/04 05:25 AM

Greetings! Just thought I would post the following info, it is based strictly on my personal experience and is not a recommendation.

I am a long-term survivor(21 years) and in general good health. Last year I successfully complete a course of Chemo for Non-Hodgkins Lyphoma. In March 2004 I began to experience numbeness/tingling in my lower legs and most profuoundly in my arms and hands. A muscle biopsy confirmed Mitocondrial Toxicity and Trizivir was stopped to to remove the AZT component.

Efforts wtih Nortriptyline were reasoanble, but not totatlly effective and the mental effect too powerful. In September, 2004 I was introduced by our local Treatments Officer to L-Carnetine and have used it now for one month, 1500mg AM/PM. My personal experience with this has been exceptional, it has worked a treat. The neuropathy has reduced by up over 85% at a guess, circulation improved and energy levels increased. So, in my mind, this is a winner and should be considered as a treatment for those suffering from Periperal NeuropathyMyopathy issues.

Trust this is of some assistance. Thanks to for a fantastic service. Cheers.
