Two patients one homeless age 40, the other 14 year old girl with complex regional pain syndrome being treated at EHCMV. Alpha Lipoic Acid gives dramatic relief in first 5 minutes of low dose drip (50 mg over one hour in Normal saline available at Wellness and College pharmacy). Usual dose is 300 mg over one hour with sugary food to prevent hypo glycemia. work up on the dose as tolerated over 4 drips or so. useful orally in peripheral neuropathy, curative in IV form for some neurologic disease it seems. Lou Gehrigs responds very well in one case I have video taped daily.
