International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    This is just a small copy and paste about isentress from wikipedia that i think is of interest to many of us.

    Research on human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) terminase proteins demonstrated that Raltegravir may block viral replication of the herpesviruses.[12]
    In January 2013, a Phase II trial was initiated to evaluate the therapeutic benefit of raltegravir in treating multiple sclerosis (MS).[13] The drug is active against Human Endogenous Retroviruses (HERVs) and possibly Epstein-Barr Virus, which have been suggested in the pathogenesis of relapsing-remitting MS.

    I dont know if isentress would be stronger then say valcyte but it would be interesting if someone new??

    cheers!!!

    He may have used it but dont quote me on that. He was taking a big cocktail of things at one stage.

    Dr Jamie's daughter was on Viread and Isentress for years, and I don't know if she still is. Dr Jamie was on them herself but stopped and said it's hard to tell if they are helping her. Both of them do other things like methylation, and the daughter is doing great. I think they were also on other medications, and I don't remember which. Dr Jamie's blog is http://www.x-rx.net
