    Caught MRSA and a staph infection as a result of having melanoma removed along with lymph notes. Taking 2 daily with breakfast and supper. It took two 10 day rounds but it has really worked for me and am thrilled with the progress I am making. Chemo w/interfuron starts in a week for the rest of my treatment.

    I am a prolonged user of autoimmune suppressant drugs. This medication seems to prevent the continued hospitalization for pneumonia. I only take it three days a week.
