vitamins in mono question

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi there,

Struggling with mono ~4 month. It is much better but I have some general question about vitamin C.

What is your experience with vitamin C.

Does it help with mono or not ?

I have an impression immune boosters like vit C are causing my mono symptoms to re-occur causing a recent setback 😦

Can it be the case or coincidence ?

Have you experienced something similar ?

    no vit c cant give you a relapse... you need as much as your stomach will allow . Plus lysine and elderberry . ive been taking a lot of vitamins since being diagnosed 16 months ago not sure if they helped ? but still keep taking them .

    Hi Mark,

    I have been taking vitamins and surprisingly have not gotten sick other than the EBV all year. However, a couple weeks ago I added vitamin D3 to my routine and I also felt like the week I started taking it my symptoms started to ramp up a bit. Not sure if that is ultimately a good or bad thing. Not sure if my immune system was going in for another battle or was overreacting when boosted by the vitamin D3. Strange though. In any case, I am likely going to continue taking it for now as it is very cold and mostly cloudy where I live now.
