    The last month Idebenone has stopped working for me.

    I had no idea why and have been searching for answers. Prior to this month of hell, it helped immensely with energy levels and muscle function

    I have been looking on pubmed for info


    .



    So I guess now Idebenone is causing more superoxide
    why?

    For 18 months it worked tremendously, to the point I went to the gym. Then did too much crashed, a few days later lots of B12 caused apparent B2 deficiency; the results Idebenone does not work for me at all.

    How do I rectify this? Adding Coq10?

    Can somebody who understands this better than me speak on it? I would greatly appreciate.

    Have you rectified the apparent B2 deficiency?

    I am trying, but I have no idea.

    Sequence of events
    Gym on Saturday, did too much, breathing problems.
    B12, mixed B vitamin oils arrive a week later, immediately I use high dose, 3, 4 sprays.
    3 days later, weak, shaky, irritable, fatigued, tingling

    Now Idebenone does not work for me. I never had any fatigue in the house using it prior to this. I have tried stuff for 12 years and nothing worked like it.

    @keenly - like many things, you need to start low and go slow with B2. It also needs a bunch of supporting nutrients. The is information in the threads on hair mineral testing and using B2.
