20 days in!

Submitted by JaneK on Sun, 2017-04-30 07:33

It's been nearly thre weeks, I'm taking Doxyand Roxy and some supplements, including NAC.

I've been taking my ABX twice a day (Doxy after breakfast and Roxy 12 hours later), but today I've decided to take them together, after my evening meal, remembering that they multiply in strength, when taken together, but I don't know if this means concurrently!

A few side effects, but nothing to write about and nothing no-one else knows!.

Sarah warned me to expect my early  progress to unravel, and it has, it 's good to know this is normal.  but what could be more onerous than the permanency of MS disability?

Hi!

I have been doing this abx lark for a few years now. I have always believed that it is a good idea to take medicines when they're designed to be taken i.e. with food or without food. I now take rifampicin which must be taken either an hour before food or two hours after food. Sometimes, late at night, I become really hungry but I know that I cannot have anything because I have yet to take my rifampacin. Roxithromycin is supposed to be taken on an empty stomach (as is azithromycin). I have always taken either my roxi or azith as I wake up (that now is accompanied by my rifampacin and amoxicillin). By the time​ I actually get up, wash and get to the kitchen, an hour has elapsed and I can then take all my doxy and all my with-food supplements with my first meal of the day. I can then take things like zinc supplements much later on - well away from my doxycycline.

Anyway, I know that lots of people pop all their antibiotic pills in one go. As you're not on rifampacin, you could do the same, if that's what you choose to do. Whatever you do, I wish you good luck.

Hi Jane!


No, I haven't "Completed" in fact I have actually stepped up my treatment to include two more medicines - rifampacin and amoxacillin. That sort of treatment regime is more in line with the Stratton Protocol than Wheldon​. I suppose what I really should do is have the bloodtests to see if CPn is detected or not. I am certainly not well as yet. I believe that many of those that make it back to good health see signs of it within the first year. I am coming up to four years soon but I remain hopeful. When I first started doing this abx caper, I used to be tremendously worried about everything I did. There really is no need. Our worries stem from the fact that a doctor in a white coat hasn't given you the nod as to this treatment. Many of the doctors that you'll come across haven't got a clue anyway. Many doctors would just assume that Chlamydia Pneumonia and Chlamydia Trachomatis must be basically the same thing.


AnywayJane, I really do hope that you get well. I wish you very good luck.
