Miaxial trial

Hi all. Am new on here. Have had fibromyalgia for about 20 years and have never taken anything for it except painkillers prescribed by doctor. Have had many X-rays, blood tests for cause of pain but have never been formally diagnosed. Recently after some online research I came across Miaxial, a powder formula with 5-HTP, magnesium, malice acid, glucosamine and chondrotin. And have received them today. Just taken first one (I have 3 months supply at £60. Expensive so hope it works. Anyone else tried it? I will post updates regular to let you know if I get any relief from my pain and chronic fatigue.

  • Hi Nik73 :)

    Welcome to the forum where you will find a friendly bunch who like to care and share :)

    I personally have not heard of this trial so I did look it up. Have you spoke to your GP about this trial you are about to do as it is important to keep them in loop regarding your medications and treatments in case they affect you badly.

    It is my personal opinion that it looks and sounds fairly good but I don't believe there is a proven record of it being an effective treatment for Fibromyalgia itself, so I personally would be very cautious until I knew all the facts but probably would not partake.

    I would like to advise our members to be careful if considering buying treatments from on-line sources and always discuss any plans to try new treatments with your GP.

    I would like to give you the link to our Mother site fibroaction.org where you will find a wealth of information regarding Fibromyalgia including an FAQ about complementary/alternative medicines/treatments which you may find useful

    Please speak to your GP if you haven't already. Hope it works out for you :)

  • Thank you very much for your reply. I have not mentioned anything to my doctor about taking this supplement. I am not on any medication. I am aware that it can interact with other medications but because I am not on any I thought I would give it a go. I do not like taking drugs or painkillers, despite the pain I am always in. I was very reluctant to try supplements because I doubted they would work, however I researched all the ingredients in Miaxial and their known side effects and benefits before I started and found encouraging information relating to fibromyalgia. I am now on day 8. Although my symptoms are still quite noticeable I do believe I have had a lift in my mood and energy levels. My muscles do not ache as much about 20 minutes after taking. I still wake with full blown stiffness, aching and tension, however, this does subside after a dose of the supplement. I do believe my sleep has been a little better, I have not noticed waking up as much in the night so far. I know all of this could be a coincidence and perhaps the improvement is psychological but I am happy that my pain has decreased and that I have more movement and positive feelings to carry out gentle tasks in my day. The £60 is 3 months supply, so not too bad. I did consider taking the known ingredients separately but would know the best dosages to take, this supplement seems to have a good balance. I will keep you updated and will take your advice to speak with my GP to let him know I am trying Miaxial, he was dismissive on my last visit, sending me for counselling for my depression. He found nothing on blood tests, xrays etc to account for the pain. Thanks again. Have a lovely day.

  • Thankyou Nik73 :) for a fantastic report into the taking of supplements many members will find what you told us useful and also its good to hear you are going to speak to your GP.

    Look forward to your update Nik73 as it does sound interesting and in my opinion it is always good to hear first hand experiences with these things. It's a good method to help us learn about them apart from trying the trial itself :)

  • Hi Nik73

    I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? I genuinely hope that this works for you and leaves you as pain free as possible. However, I really would discuss the issue with your GP before taking any in case it causes any interactions with your medications?

    You may also need to discuss stopping any medications with your GP also?

    Take care

  • Hello Nik73,

    I would like to also welcome you to the FibroAction community! Hope you find it helpful.

    I have noticed this subject has come up before and if you use our search bar you'll find the other posts. You may wish to contact these members who original posted to discuss this trial.

    There has be much research into Fibromyalgia and this still continues.To understand medical research studies you may find this link interesting;

    healthunlocked.com/fibroact...

    Whether or not the ingredients individually are known to help Fibro symptoms or not could be debatable. Here is two studies which I've found where the conclusion of Malic Acid is it may help and Magnesium which mention being used alongside Amitriptyline.

    ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/858...

    ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/222...

    All research conducted is usually repeated several times before any definite conclusion is made. So in essence what I am saying is it should not be considered in any way a proven treatment but it may be beneficial alongside a combined approach toward Fibro symptoms.

    I notice you mention it is £60 is that per month? Whether the benefits you may feel are worth the outlay will be only your decision if you notice any improvemnt. I suppose the question would be which ingredients are responsible for any benefit you feel and could these be found cheaper elsewhere?

    The only other link I thought you may find interesting is the following, however again this is merely discussion or the benefits believed to be found when using these supplements

    ukfibromyalgia.com/compleme...

    As others have mention it is advisable to mention these supplements to a healthcare professional so they can advise of any possible interaction to medications you may be taking regularly.

    If you are struggling with your symptoms you may need to see your GP for a medication review.If you would like to print our factsheets to discuss with your GP the best treatment plan you are very welcome.
