In Parkinson’s disease, research has revealed that oxidative stress and free radicals add to the deterioration of brain tissue. Low levels of glutathione have been found in those suffering from severe damaged brain tissue due to Parkinson’s disease. High levels of glutathione can slow the progression of brain tissue damage. Memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease has been proven to slow with an elevated level of glutathione in the body. Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by degeneration of brain nerve cells and shrinkage of brain tissue. While it is unclear whether oxidative damage is a cause or merely an effect of Alzheimer’s, glutathione has been proven to slow down the progression of the disease.
It amazes me how little people know about what they speak of. Let's get a bunch of things straight. Vicodin, Norco, and Lortab are all brand names of hydrocodone. Percocet, Endocet, OxyContin, Roxicodone, are all brand names for oxycodone based drugs. Generally, oxycodone is said to be stronger than hydrocodone. Also oxycodone Is available in single-medicine formulas such as OxyContin and available with Acetominophen as found in Percocet. Hydrocodone is not available as a single medicine formula, it is always with Acetominophen. That will be changing when the new drug, Zohydro is released which will be the first hydrocodone only pill. Now, when it comes to the best pill for pain I would have to say Opana ER (oxymorphone) is the best. Unfortunately the formula has been changed to one similar to what purdue did with the "OPs". The new formula Opana cannot be shaved or crushed. Luckily Endo has screwed us and done us a favor at the same time.
I’ve been fighting shingles now for 6 weeks and I’m still suffering from pain where the shingles blisters were located. I started 15 billion probiotics midway thru this and was feeling better. I was taking 5 billion 3 times a day. A friend coaxed me to bump it up to 20 billion. So I did this and by the 3rd day I had a rash all over my head. I’ve since stopped and the rash has gone away. I really want to go back on it, but now I’m stuck with 20 billion capsules. Any ideas on breaking these capsules in half to take half in the morning then again at night? Or should I wait til after this shingle pain goes away? I’m sure I’m in toxic overload with having fibromyalgia and type 2 diabetes. What would u suggest I do? Thank you.
