    I am one of those who reacted badly to inosine. It made all of my flu-like symptoms worse. Does anyone know why it does this? Is my immune system so messed up that inosine acts on the wrong parts? Is my body not strong enough to handle the changes? These are totally wild guesses on my part. I do have my labs from Dr. Rey.

    @heapsreal knows about inosine so he'll see this and chime in.

    I'd call or email Dr Rey about your reaction -- assuming she recommended the inosine.

    What are your specific immune dysfunctions -- do you have low NK cells?

    I e-mailed, but it was nearly 5 Miami time, so expect to hear from Dr. Rey tomorrow. Low normal NK, but high everything else in the immune panel.

    Flu like symptoms can be a sign of your immune system up regulated. Some of the symptoms people get when they have the flu are from the immune system not just the infection.

    Sort of similar to people who get the flu shot and say they get the flu, really the symptoms they get are from an up regulated immune system??

    I should have checked my e-mail again. She said to stop for 1 week, then try again with just 1/2 tab a day.

    heapsreal, I guess it's not surprising then. I used to get very ill from flu shots, though I haven't taken one in years. Dr. Rey strongly suggested that I get one anyway; but since I'm rarely out of the house I decided not to.
