Love it! I feel healed / restored. After the initial days of huge energy surge, I’m accustomed to not being tired anymore and it’s basically like having the energy levels of my early twenties back
Thanks for the update. Just placed an order for some!

I started taking methylene blue in mid-January 2023, and I took it daily for two months. I started the dose at 0.5mg/kg of bodyweight and adjust downward over a couple of weeks (based on the amount of blue in my urine after 24 hours) to a dose of 0.25mg/kg. After two months, I had a complete blood count that showed my bicarbonate was above the upper end of normal, which has never happened before. I did a little reading and learned that methylene blue is used to treat lactic acidosis, so it likely was the cause of my high carbonate level.

I have discontinued using it for now, and I'll rerun the CBC in a few months to see if bicarbonate has returned to the normal range. My energy was good while on methylene blue, but the higher dose I started with seemed to make me a bit jittery and anxious.
