In the anti-amoebic protocol, they used a depot cortisone, intramuscular.Mikel said:Hi,
I could not find cortisone dosage. How much and what kind are You taking for Yourselves? In Anti amoebic treatment paper this as I understood was IV type. What about oral? Is the type in Fludan OK for oral use?
I will check allopurinol in local pharmacies. I am affraid it is for prescription.
Cortisone is something you might need, or not. If you cannot get a prescription for it, you could get hydrocortisone from fludan.com and have it on your medical cabinet just in case . Hydrocortisone from fludan.com is typically for low dose hydrocortisone to treat severe adrenal fatigue.
Prednisone dose ranges from 0.2-2mg per kilo of body weight per day. If used less than 3 days, no descending dose is needed throughout the next days. That is, if you needed 60mg one day to buffer Herx reactions, that is that. Next day you can soldier off the Herx reactions.
Cortisone is discouraged because it increases parasitic infections due to its immunosuppressive effect. One single dose when it is REALLY needed could be used though.
If it is more cost effective, you could use a normal pain killer on a specific day from your local pharmacy. Only if the pain is too bad though and you have no contraindications to use them.
In this website, you'll know how much hydrocortisone would be the equivalent of 60mg of prednisone:
Yes, each situation is different and should be individualized. The above is a rough guide. The dose varies a lot as you can see, usually, the clinical setting and problems dictates the rough amount of cortisone needed._http://www.drugs.com/dosage/cortisone.html
there is some general possible window for dosage. Am I understanding it well, that it depends on situation? :) Guess so. Silly, was it?
It seems vets used allopurinol as an anti-parasitic. In the original anti-amoeba protocol, allopurinol is included as an anti-parasitic.Any hints for allopurinol? I thought that when I order for pets :) I will not have to show prescription but... unfortunately looks like that it is not the case.
I am affraid creating noise but allopurinol for my pet is OK.
My guess is that if it is good enough for animals, it is probably good enough.
My 2 cents!
