Dr. Castells on Sodium Cromolyn (Gastrocrom)

In this talk, Dr. Castells describes how the recommended therapeutic dose is 200 mg 4 times a day.  However, the drug causes so many side effects (in the intestines is what she mentions) so they start with 100 mg once a day, and increase over the course of 8 weeks.

Once they get up to the therapeutic level, there is a “profound inhibition of mast cell activation.”

sodium cromolyn = natural “cromone” that she’s been using for 20 years
