Hi I started taking parasym plus for symptoms of high ICP (pressure in head (worse when lying on my back, severe headaches at base of head that extend into neck and shoulders, racing hear rate, anxiety, endometriosis, severe motion sickness, feeling of suffocation upon laying down, histamine intolerance) Am wondering if anyone has tried this and how long it took to notice a change. I am taking 3 caps in morning upon waking. Thank you!March 21, 2016 at 3:36 pm #5910bugbytes333Participant
Does PP work for icp?March 23, 2016 at 5:32 pm #5911
Hi Kristen, Parasym Plus triggers the postganglionic vagus nerve (helps with gastroparesis/constipation, gall bladder and pancreatic function, stomach acid production, inflammation control and it boosts acetylcholine to help the brain function and muscles). For intracranial pressure, I wonder if you have tried Diamox? 😉July 2, 2016 at 10:33 am #5976
Hey I was wondering is it safe to take parasym plus with Nimodipine (lower dose of up to 60-90mg per day)?

Yes, that should be no problem. Please let us know how it helps your GI tract, cognition and inflammation control, should you need help in those areas. Fingers crossed for you, my friend.July 8, 2016 at 10:16 am #5980
DR. Diana Drisco,
I was wondering how long it took for patients in the research study of Parasym plus to get improvements and the significant improvements on average? Many thanks,

Hi Tareq, The folks who suffered with gastroparesis/constipation usually got immediate results (within 60-90 minutes) for a bowel movement UNLESS they were impacted (the stool was too hard to pass even with vagus nerve stimulation) or if they were on anticholinergic medications or opiates (which diminish the cholinergic effects to some degree). Fatigue, if low acetylcholine was to blame, responded in about the same amount of time. It’s very rewarding to watch patients take it, then often within 30 minutes or so, the sparkle comes back in their eyes, they sit up straight again, and they’re awake! That’s what it was like for me, but I was so incredibly sick that I wasn’t awake for more than 3 hours a day, and I wanted to be asleep those hours! I think my response was so dramatic because I was so extremely affected. When I had poor gall bladder function and pancreatitis, it took about a month before everything was working well, and I could COUNT on having a bowel movement every day, had normal stomach acid production, gall bladder function, etc. One of the doctors in our study wrote me a SONG after 2 days (to the tune of the Monkeys “I’m a Believer”. That was awesome.) I hope you get similar results. I know we are all different, and I don’t know what medications you are on, or even if you show symptoms of low acetylcholine, but this can be a key piece for many of us. I wish the very best for you and yours.July 12, 2016 at 4:28 pm #5983
That’s amazing 🙂 I’m so glad it worked well for you. It must be such a relief after suffering like that for so long! Unfortunately I haven’t had results from parasym plus, but I will continue to take it for at least a month in case anyway. I’m just on a low dose of nimodipine too and an antiviral called valacyclovir. I am thinking of going down the mast cell disease treatment route with the antihistamines etc 🙂 You’re doing such great work in this fieldJuly 12, 2016 at 5:58 pm #5984
Thank you for your kind words. You may have seen from the video of the lecture at the Univ. of Houston, that I was able to get my gall bladder working again AND reversed pancreatitis. This was helping me, even when I didn’t have fatigue. YES. Absolutely, try Zantac/Zyrtec. If histamine is related to your condition, these can be of tremendous help.
