neuropathy relief!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Oct 05, 2008 | Verified Purchase

I have been using Benfotiamine since Feb. 2008. I suffer from Hereditary Sensory Neuropathy, diagnosed by Mayo's in '97. My allopathic physicians all had me using addictive anti-depressant and or anti-anxiety meds to treat this, assuring me it would only worsen with time and NOTHING could be done. Internet research put me on to Benfotiamine and sure enough it worked even tho most of the information I encountered was concerning diabetic neuropathy. I started out at a high 1200mg dose and am now down to a maintenance level of 500mg once daily. No more prescription meds for this at all. I like the larger dose of 250mg--fewer pills to swallow. I much prefer healing to band-aiding the symptom and letting the disease just worsen. I am not completely pain free. Sometimes extended periods on my feet can still cause severe discomfort but it can now be remedied by rest whereas before it couldn't, but the nighttime ordeal of little sleep, of getting up to stand on a cold tile floor in the dead of winter, or chill my feet in the bathtub, or sleep in wet socks with a fan on my feet are over. Now when I go to sleep...my feet go pleasantly with me and they're actually under the covers.

Thanks for your feedback!

I'm using allibiotic prophylactically but have still had a couple of bouts with infections.
