Some time ago I read someone's discussion here about using glutamine to help with the bone-pain effects of Taxol. Would that person (or anyone else who has used glutamine) please respond to this message?
I'm getting ready to my last treatment this Friday (yeah!), and I'm going to see if the L-Glutamine helps. A naturopathic doctor I'm working with found a short summary of a study that indicated that a small sample of patients who used glutamine with Taxol either had very little or no bone-pain. The study recommended the use of 10 grams of glutamine by mouth 3 times per day beginning 24 hours after the Taxol treatment.
How much did you use? When did you start it? How long did you take it? What was your experience with it? Did you use capsules or powder? Anything else I should know about it? Thanks for your help and I hope this info will help someone else who's on Taxol. - Gay Jurgens
