@sflorence Thats very interesting. You getting the drugs from an online pharmacy? If so which one?

Have you noticed with any of the drugs that they work for a day or two, or until you take a break, and then stop working thereafter?

What is your methodology for choosing drugs?

(I haven’t read all the posts here... . ) FWIW, I believe there’s a thread over at Healthrising.org/forums. Cort covered one of the only PWCS to ever go from bedridden , being dragged to see Goldstein, to working out and field hockey, in a matter of weeks. Maybe some ideas if you haven’t seen it.

I am choosing the drugs in a slightly different manner. I am following his guidelines with many of his drugs, but I am also taking anecdotal evidence from PubMed where there are doctors reporting having cured their patients of MCS with psychotropic drugs. I focus on MCS because currently my MCS is worse than my CFS. CFS and MCS many say are the same illness, and if I remember reading correctly Goldstein claimed that most of his CFS patients had MCS as well. Most members on this site are deeply sensitive to all drugs, herbs, and supplements.

Annie Hopper has hundreds of anecdotal recoveries of MCS/CFS through her program. As does the Gupta Programme. They both claim that MCS/CFS is the same illness, and through the same method they are healing. If you are not familiar with the Annie Hopper or Gupta Programme I would look into that before doing Goldsteins method. Goldsteins method is much more dangerous and should be used as a final resort. I was unable to do these programs due to how extreme my MCS is.

This being said, I have seen anecdotal recoveries through drugs such as Risperdal, Celexa, Effexor, Gabapentin, Parnate, ect, ect.. cure people of their MCS. Unfortunately, I do not know if these people were ever able to come off their meds, but if Goldstein's words are true, they should be able to come off after a few years. There are more stories on Forums that are a bit harder to find, but they are there, and people are extremely angry at them for claiming CFS/MCS is "all in their head".

An excellent second choice for reducing glutamate presynaptic release is chlorzoxazone, which is much more benign, and which Dr. Goldstein described as being "surprisingly effective". I have been taking chlorzoxazone for many months, and it's one of my two most effective medicines (along with gabapentin) from Dr. Goldstein. Chlorzoxazone is safe enough that a half-size dose is available OTC in Canada. People should have their liver enzymes monitored if on it long term, however.
ce.
A new study on that drug:

Chlorzoxazone exhibits neuroprotection against Alzheimer’s disease by attenuating neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in vitro and in vivo (mouse study)

The best way to raise your nitric oxide levels is to take nitroglycerin or one of its relatives. Nitroglycerin is converted directly to nitric oxide by the body.

At the height of my worst episode of ME/CFS, I took a 10 mg tablet of isosorbide dinitrate (Isordil), which is essentially a longer acting form of nitroglycerin. I went from being bed bound to working full time in three days. Within three more weeks, I had achieved complete remission of all symptoms, and I remained that way for almost all of the next eight years. I didn't even need the Isordil during that time.
I took one 20mg tablet of isosorbide dinitrate - no effect. Do you think if isosorbide dinitrate doesn't work from start, then, most likely, it won't work even if taken long-term?

Also, do you think nitric oxide levels can still play a significant role (in particular ME/CFS sup-type) if taking isosorbide dinitrate has no effect?

Might be worth trying again as single doses a few more times, but continuous use of nitrate drugs such as nitroglycerin (glyceryl trinitrate) or isosorbide dinitrate will lead to nitrate tolerance, where the drug loses its effect.

Apparently high dose folic acid (10,000 mcg daily) and vitamin C help prevent nitrate tolerance and nitrate drug induced eNOS dysfunction.

Thanks, looked at studies, I can try taking one 20mg isosorbide dinitrate tablet with Vit-C a few times with one week in between each dose.
Most likely I will use the same Vit-C dosing as in study, but only once a week, on the same day as I take isosorbide dinitrate (1000mg x3 a day.).

That was my experience. Isosorbide dinitrate worked only that one time for me, although that one time was very significant. If the first dose doesn't do anything, I think that it's extremely unlikely that subsequent doses will.
Also, do you think nitric oxide levels can still play a significant role (in particular ME/CFS sup-type) if taking isosorbide dinitrate has no effect?
I really don't know.

I had no MCS, bur must to say DNRS from Annie improved my sleep a lot...within two months.

Thanks @sflorence for mentioning some names of some drugs, I will definitely explore. I'm trying to improve further and at the moment it looks good.

I tried this a few times, interestingly, I started having mild to moderate headache after ~6 hours from taking Isosorbide dinitrate 20mg. This headache is different from the one I feel when there's ME/CFS symptom worsening.
11.29 - Isosorbide dinitrate 20mg + Vit C 3g - no effect
12.06 - Isosorbide dinitrate 20mg + Vit C 3g. Headache started at the evening, clears up in the mourning.
12.12 - Isosorbide dinitrate 20mg + Vit C 3g, Headache started at the evening, clears up in the mourning.

Is there an order/sequence to follow for the profiling drugs (center column)? Where do you start?
You might want to tag @JPV so he sees you post.
EDIT: looks like he last logged in to phoenixrising in 2016, so probably he will never see this.

Isosorbide dinitrate is very cheap and you can order online, that would be cheaper then mailing it from another country, plus it's a lot of hassle to do for someone with ME.
