as in, getting acclimated to it?

the dose starts at 5 mg; over a full month, no less, work up to a full dose of 20mg.

4th day out and this stuff is whacking me silly. vomiting 1st day, immobilizing neuropathies since then, dizziness, trembling, exhaustion.

can't be a herx- namenda doesn't kill pathogens.

anyone else have this kind of ride starting out?

tx, dilly

Hi Carol-

tx for looking up namenda posts.

i searched here too before asking the question-- found very little posted, and what was there about what namenda does, not what it does to you [Smile]

maybe it is still too new a med?

hugs, in any case... dill

for the next person in the however distant future who does a search for namenda posts---

i have no idea how typical my experience with Namenda has been, but after a very rough 4 days

(nausea, headaches, severe neuropths, exhaustion, feeling like i've been dragging around a 1,000 pound weight, etc)

this last day has been managable. This seems to be one of those meds that one the doc says it will take at least 30 days to adjust to it, that is exactly what is meant.

hope this helps someone else...

dilly

I'm taking it and it has totally changed my life, for the better.
I've been on antidepressants for years and thought I was doing great.
Namenda, WOW!
I'm happy. I'm remembering things....I feel like my brain doesn't have lyme most of the time! No side effects. This stuff is great.

Lyme is like the flu. You can get it and recover, but you can always get it again.
