I had someone suggest to me that I take Lugol's solution, Selenium, and (this will probably freak you out) Vi-Tal! The Vi-Tal, I purchased at a feed store (yes for animals) and it is full of all kids of vitamins and minerals that are essential to the body. If you were to purchase them all separate, you could very well spend over $1000. I'm just starting it so I'll have to get back to you with some results, but the person that told me about it is a pain doctor that takes this stuff himself and I have NEVER seen him have so much as a headache!

I would like more info on this. I am really curious, because I did a google search and can't find any info on Vi-Tal. It would not suprise me at all if the vitamins for animals was better and cheaper. With some of the docs we have in this one horse town, I almost would go to the vet instead :)

Maybe it's this: http://www.cellhealthmakeover.com/productsforpets.html
Whatever it is, if it's only approved for veterinary use then it's not necessarily pure enough for human consumption. I'd worry about that, is all I'm sayin'...
I have Fibromyalgia, but nothing else!

I take Lyrica 150mg b.i.d.
Tramacet 75 mg for breakthrough pain

Tried amitryptelene 2.5 mg but it made me a zombie!

This is not quite on topic..but I am an old broad and recall in the 60's when I was in college, my room mate's father was a vet...because the school was in a 'dry town' we tried everything we could think of to get drunk.  One week-end she brought a bottle of Horse Analgesic from home, we put it in grape juice then set in on the radiator.  To this day, I don't know how we are alive, or at the very least, why we didn't hemmorhage half to death.  I'll tell you what though...it got rid of my killer menstral (sp?)cramps!

Peace, love, 'the answer my friend, is blowin' in the wind'...and all that 'groovy' stuff.

Terri,
If you investigate those suggestions one at a time it is rather scary. Lugol's solution contains iodine and at high concentrations can be toxic. It's also used in the production of meth. Selenium toxicity can be fatal and the required amount is measured in micrograms. For this reason alone I'd stick with a human vitamin supplement. As far as the Vi-Tal goes, it's specifically used in horses and goats. I see no reason to take a vitamin for animals when so many supplements are available for human consumption, but that's my opinion. It's just that so many vitamins and minerals can be detrimental, even toxic at high levels that I prefer to use human supplements rather than animal ones. I would hate to hear that someone died because they used a supplement designed for a 900 pound animal. Like I said... just my 2ยข.

I totally agree with Jeannie.  I sure wouldn't take chances like that.  I know a pain doctor suggested it but I've met a few strange doctors in my day.

The Vi-Tal comes in a small pkg and you mix it with TONS of water. He suggested that I put just a pinch in 12 oz glass of water. It is also used fro CHICKENS! It has tons of vitamins and minerals in it. I wish I would have kept the pkg so I could list all that is in it. The Lugol's solution, he wants me to take because my body is low on iodine and iodide. He gave me instructions on taking it. The selenium also was suggested because my body is low on it.

As with any suggestion made on the boards, it is only that, a suggestion. Thanks for the feedback!
