Hello! Haven't posted in a while and have been having ups and downs.
I live in California and have state medical healthcare/HMO. I pay out of pocket for a naturopath who is familiar with APS and has been so important in helping me.
I have never had a clot, but fit the description for "mild" APS to a "T". I also have chronic CMV infection and my dr feels this is a contributing factor to my overall feelings of crapiness (hehe).
I suffered ill health for 8 years, and when I tested positive for APS and started baby aspirin, it was like a miracle! I felt CURED!!! But it didn't last long and so I have been adjusting therapies ever since then and kind of go back and forth with how I feel.
I just found out about LDN and have a prescription waiting for me ($50/mo- ouch!) and am wondering about those of you who take this medication.
Currently my regime is as follows:
Nattokinaise (blood thinner), Willow Bark (aspirin), Fish Oil 4gm/day (blood thinning plus other good benefits), Zoloft, Lavender oil, Methylfolate, Vit D, and some immune modulating/anti viral herbs/supplements.
I have not been able to do a heparin/lovenox trial, and I am not ready to pursue warfarin or anything like that right now.
I am started LDN 1.5mg once daily. Any insight from any of you is greatly appreciated!
