Pharmacological Dose Vitamin C and Interrupted Oral Bromocriptine
A Synergistic Effect

The use of ascorbic acid mixture as an immune stimulant was discussed earlier. Bromocriptine was discussed immediately above.

So why do we here discuss these two agents in combination? The reason is that some combinations exhibit characteristics not noted with either agent alone. Such a cooperative effect is known in pharmacology as “synergy”.

A perceived synergy of the ascorbate / bromocriptine was recognized in the late 1980′s at the Mississippi Baptist Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi, where patients placed on high dose vitamin C and bromocriptine experienced improvement in strength and stamina much greater than that noted with either agent alone. This was perceived as a possible major advance.

In quality of life analyses of subjectively perceived problems in advanced cancer patients, the three worst problems are:

loss of physical strength
pain
loss of stamina
Deficits of strength and stamina, as perceived by the patients, are usually not addressed by the conventional physician, and there is no standard of care intervention for these problems. Patients are, however, pleased if the physician or his staff exhibits sufficient concern to define the extent of these problems, and possess sufficient therapeutic knowledge that these symptoms may be successfully treated. It is essential to remember the delay to effective of 1 to 8 weeks onset described in “bromocriptine” applies here.
