    Minocycline and MS

    I suffered from Lyme Disease for 15 years, from May 1990 to April 2005, without treatment. Many of my symptoms were consistent with MS, including a bought of blindness in one eye, nerve pain, depression and fatigue. The most effective method of treating the ongoing symptoms that I have found is Minocycline. Coincidently, Minocycline shows great promise in treating MS.

    The Univerisity of Calgary has published the results of a 3 year trial of Minocycline as a therapy for RRMS. You can find the abstract at (a US government website) by searching for MS Minocycline.

    In summary the annualized relapse rate was cut from 1.2 to .25, the proportion of active lesions was cut from 47.5% to 8.7% and the treatment was safe and well tolerated. It is also very inexpensive - about $70 cdn/month. Minocycline has been used by 10s of millions of people for months at a time to treat adult acne.

    Minocycline is now being used in a large scale test through the U of Calgary, involving about 400 people.
