What are side effects of taking inosine and equillibrium?

I was diagnosed with CFIDS, Fibromyalgia, Viral Meningitis and Shingles in 2003. That is after two years of going undiagnosed here in my county because of lack of Dr. knowledge. I was on antivirals for two years. I felt better finally and returned to work part time. In 2007 I had a recurrence of one of the entero viruses. I again had an IVig. I remained in remission for six years and boom back again with severe fatigue and brain fog. My ID Med doc is using Inosine and Equillibrum Herb for people like me and does not want to do another IVig. I am concerned about both as I have never taken them and I have weird reactions to stuff. I looked up inosine and it did not say there were any bad side effects. He said if I was allergic I might experience fever and flue symptoms for a few days and then it would stop. I would like to hear from you. Shirley YYYY@YYYY

Hi dear user! I am glad that you have been diagnosed finally. Fatigue can be due to various causes which may also include bad lifestyle habits, poor diet, lack of exercise, drug side effects, hormonal issues like thyroid gland dysfunction, age and other underlying health issues. I would be a good idea to check the lifestyle, hydration status and diet and then seeing the doctor to rule out hormonal issues, anemia, etc.
Focusing on your question, side effects of Inosine is not very well known so far, but it is naturally found in the body and the lab preparation is used as medicine which is a very new discovery and is known to help in nerve nourishment and functions that may be due to injury to spinal cord or the brain, however, it is known to aggravate the symptoms of gout i.e. increase joint pain in patients of gout. The other medication i.e. Herbal equilibrium is a herbal medication and is usually used for menopausal symptoms and may cause skin rash or other symptoms of allergy like flu or stomach irritation due to allergy (if any) to herbal components present in it. There are usually less studies available on herbal medications due to its non-prevalent use.
I hope that answers the query! Do feel free to write further!
