Does anyone here take 1ooo mg or more of vitamin c daily and if so, have they cleared and generally felt better?

I am clear.

Taking vitamin C has nothing to do with clearing...but I take several vitamins as a part of my regimen every day (no vitamins or herbs will help you clear)

Vitamin C I take SEVERAL times a day because it doesn't stay in your body.  Taking 1000 in the am would be worthless....your body can only retain so much then it pees the rest away.

I take
Vitamin C
Vitamin E
Vitamin B complex
Vitamin D
Selenium
Folic Acid
Grape Seed
Biotin
Zinc

And a few more I am forgetting right now.  I don't think that they make me "feel" any better except in general overall health.

REMEMBER DO NOT TAKE EXTRA IRON (or vitamin A or K - the Iron in your liver is where the virus replicates...so you do NOT want ANY IRON in your diet...I don't even eat food cooked off of our cast iron skillet anylonger because they advise you NOT TO).

I'm not treating yet...and I take vitamin c, as Girl said, it is time released and I still take 500 in the morning, and 500 at night, I am one of those people who can tell when I'm taking too little or too much of some things, my body tells me...when I take too much vit c I get too loose in the bowel (sorry for all that info, ha ha) and I get a little tongue sore...so I keep it to 1000 a day...remember if you don't take it you'll miss out on that gloriously colored urine, ha ha!

I also agree with NYgirl it's prob got little to do with actually "clearing" you of this virus, but it's a wonderful anti-oxidant, and one of those that youre body craves, especially when youre system is being taxed by a prolonged illness, stress, etc. My regimen definitely makes me feel better...especially with some of the symptoms like achey (achy) joints, etc...

Hey Girl: nice regimen, I'm impressed...I take a few more things too, but I'm glad youre supplementing, especially since youre taxing your system so much...you'll be fine, I know it...

Yuck I am so tired of taking pills at this point just gagging that many down grosses me out.  I had a couple more I was doing as well but...after a while it's like forget it and take the staples I can't look at another needle or pill!

I remember when i first started reading everything I could find on vitamins being sure it was going to help me clear...but the concept of taking something for your health was so new to me I didn't realize that the ony thing that could do that was the DRUGS not the vitamins.

It's probably one of the benefits I've gotten from treatment = taking overall better care of my health you know?

And Beags believe me babe I was so so so mad about not being able to go online this weekend I was bored to tears and LONELY! That's what happens when I don't feel good I get so isolated! But I just was so tired I couldn't be bothered to dig up all the disks and start the whole reformat.  The shot just wiped me OUT for some reason and I slept from 7pm till 10:30am = straight through like in a coma. I don't mind when the shot does that to me at ALL.

How you guys feeling?

I'm with you, girlie! My body tells me when I'm not getting enough too. And on those occaisions when I'm getting too much, my tongue can also get sore. We have soooo many similarities!

Sorry to hear you had a rough weekend, hope your next shot gives you no sxs.  I have a fever of 101.2 right now, that seems to be the name of the game lately.  Deb how many shots do you have left, I lost count?  With this brain fog and fever I seem to be forgetting a lot.

I take a really good multi, natural E, flax seed oil w/meals, calcium, and of course yummi ribavirin.  I take C's when I think I am getting a cold, but my multi has C in it.

I think some batches of my pegasys are stronger than others.  I will have "sleep in weekends" on one batch, and play hard weekends on another batch.  Go figure?

I have heard that from Mr. BB too, that his wife read it somewhere.  But it was specifically listed by my HCV doctor to take it or the fish oil with every meal.  He has a printed list of which supplements to take etc. with treatment that he gives to all his patients.  Just goes to show how different the docs can be!  I think it is for the antioxidant qualities....I even went back and checked my list!  So I take it, 1A, clear at 12 & 24 - now in the home stretch at 39/48!  Yeah, I can smell the finish line!

I stopped the flax seed oil as well...funny how we all started out with the same logic.

Doc told me no way Jose - and he's been right so far so I go with his logic over mine ;)

Ha beam, hows the weather? It's been rainin here for days , did squeeze in the yard work sunday , so the grass is at bay . Seen the king kong movie and I felt like a kid again . The naitives in the flick all looked like devels , a really good movie .

      I noticed on the shot fri. , I lost a couple drops. So I tried using some water in the syrynge to simulate the shot after wards . Didn't seem but a mike a gram or so lost . Shot still seemed to hit pretty good , slept alot from it . Hmg was 11.1 last week , a drop from 12.3 in a weeks time.

How are ya guys fairing, good I hope?
