That is exactly what my doctor (Dr. Ganguli, Germantwon, TN) said. That it was a new treatment they were doing, that includes vitamins and "cofactors". I have been trying to find information on it - which I have found some, but no side effects or hair loss symptoms. I'm wondering if this is even going to work for me. I have to drive an hour and 15 minutes to get to the doctor office, and want to be sure it is worth the shot! I'm on Plaquenil, Lyrica, Elavil, Arava, B-12 vitamins, Vitamin C.

If you or anyone you know has any information on this or the side effects - I would VERY much appreciate it!

Thank you!!

I sure will! My appointment is the 16th. What I have found is that it treats the symptoms but not the actual antibodies into remission. I will keep you all posted, and if anyone happens to know any thing further on this - let me know! Thank you guys!!

Have a blessed day!!

That is a good link. Simple and to the point. I am wondering if this is the only office that does it or is it a widespread thing that any office that offers infusion therapy could get? Just courious since this is from Maryland?

I am not sure April. I planned to google it both ways and research (by Myers docktail and the former reference name as Gaby's cocktail). It kind of sounded like it's been around awhile but I haven't looked far enough into it. I will ask my Mom, who is a 38 year R.N., if she has heard of it as well.
