I went to the Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Center, and as mentioned in another thread they prescribe a LOT of supplements.
 
There are too many for me to take so I've cut them all out.
 
I could tell right away that the Valtrex and Fluconazole helped, so I continue to take them.
 
But the thyroid?
 
Coag Clear? (to thin the blood from too much fibrin monomer)
 
who can tell if they help at all? I can't.
 
thoughts?
 
The others that I tried for a while and then gave up on are: Maitake, Fish oil, super probiotics, pregnenolone, transfer factor 6000, Dhea pregnenolone, and all the hormones. (progesterone, etc.)
 
anyone else have this problem of the bajillion supplements???

Were your supplements recommended by a doctor or just some you decided to try on your own. I take a lot of supplements and have had excellent results. I only take the ones made by laboraties in the United States that are FDA inspected. All of mine were prescribed by a homepathic doctor that analyzed what I needed so those are the ones I take regularly.
successful with herbal, vitamins and minerals

Nutritional supplements don't usually make a dramatic difference immedately - it takes time for them to work. Be patient. Also, there are topical versions of the hormones (DHEA, pregnenolone, female hormones) that may be easier to use and are just as effective as pill versions.

Sometimes supplements are designed to work together - make sure you and your doctor are in agreement about which supplements you should take together if any, and which to take separately or which ones can wait to be tried later if you don't want to take all of them right now.

Good luck,
