Just popped my last rifampicin

Hey ...

I have been popping them since last February and I have just popped my last rifampicin. That's it. No more rifampicin. No more religiously waiting for 2 hours after food or an hour before. No more extremely dark urine. Finished.

I shall still continue to take my other antibioticsi ... until they too run out. I haven't done a count up but I guess that will be in the middle of the first quartile of next year. In the meantime, I think I need to get plenty of milk thistle down my gullet and give my liver a winter break.

Pulse # 47

My nasty cold has finally gone ... and good riddance to it too.  So this morning I started pulse 47. The weather forecast predicts rain all bloody week ... so what better thing than tinidazole pulsing? I've come back to bed; turned electric blanket nearly full on and pulled the covers over my head. God, that weather is foul!

Cool

Cough & a cold.

Hi folks!

I think that it is an inescapable fact that when we are popping lots of antibioticsi on this protocol, we inevitably ask ourselves whether we are doing the right thing or not. After all, taking lots of antibiotics is not a normal thing to do.

This week, I can genuinely say that I am glad that I am popping lots of antibiotics and, if I wasn't, I'd probably be one of those talked about people that bang on their doctor's door demanding antibiotics. I have one of those pesky colds that has decided to take up residence on my chest. Were it not for the fact that I am taking doxycycline, azithromycin and rifampicin, I'd be thinking that I need antibiotics.

Pulse # 46

About a week late this time but pulse #46 commenced earlier today at lunchtime.

Pulse # 45

Last Monday, I was so inspired by JaneK's post, I decided to start a pulse myself. I am early this time but at least I get it in before my holiday. This is, I think, pulse # 45. I have one more day to go.

Pulse # 44

After my marathon cold coming to an stubborn end, I have finally been able to pulse again. This morning, I got up early (for me) and took a tinii tab. This is pulse 44. I had planned on using metroi but the tini were close at hand. Let's see how we go with this one.

Pulse # 43

A couple of hours ago I popped my first tinii tab of this, pulse 43.  When this strip of tinidazole is finished, that will be my last tini pulse; I have no more.  I have a box of 21 metronidazolei that I brought back from Spain latest autumn. If I do decide to pulse after that, I'll pick up some more metro when I'm in Madeira.

I am currently still taking rifampacin. That supply is due to run out in October too. It'd certainly be great if I could look back then and say that I am now fit.  Being realistic is no fun at all.

Pulse # 42

I'm a little late ... but I stated tinii pulse 42 a few hours ago. Still hoping for magic.

Pulse # 4I

Tinii pulse 41 nearly finished. One more tab to take at lunchtime and I'm done.

Pulse 40 (2nd with rifampicin)

In the early hours of last Monday (27th) I started tinidazole pulse 40. A couple of hours ago I took my last tini tab of this pulse ... and I'm still here. Hey, this has been two pulses in the same month! I have found this pulse less irksome than the last. I am weaker than ever but ever hopeful. The weather has been dreadful with torrential rain and blustery winds, so I haven't missed brisk power-walking along the Coastal Path (yeah, if only!).

Pulse 39 (1st with rifampicin)

A couple of hours ago I popped my final tablet of this pulse. It is actually the first time that I have pulsed whilst taking rifampicin and amoxacillin. Was it any different? It was certainly more arduous fitting everything in. Rifampicin, amoxicillini and azithromycin without food ... then doxycycline and tinidazole with food. Then on top of that one has to take probiotics away from all of the antibioticsi. There are only so many hours in the day and so sometimes I have had to give the probiotics a miss (like tonight).

Started rifampicin

In the early hours of this morning, I popped my first capsule of rifampicin. As far as I am aware, I didn't wake up dead, so about an hour ago I put my 2nd capsule ... and it seems that I'm still not dead.  I am on half dose of 300 milligrams per day and shall double up two-fold within the coming week.  I must say that I did seem to feel it ... but then it could have been just my imagination.

Started amoxicillin

In the early hours of this morning, I took Rica's advice; I bit the bullet and opened a big tub containing 500 x 500mg capsules of amoxicillini.  I have already popped the 2nd one.

Pulse #38

A few hours ago, I just finished tinii pulse 38.  I suppose that I have been a bit naughty by not announcing it until it was over.  I have been a bit naughty in many ways recently; missing supplementsi for days on end for one thing.  I suppose that I need to get out of the rut and try to spark some energy into myself.  Perhaps I could connect my mitochondria up to the mains?

Anyway, tinidazole pulse 38 is over. I had no energy before it and I don't believe that I have gained any. I have a big polothene bag full of rifampicin, given the me by one of our Eastern European members. I shall rest up for a week before commencing.

Pulse #37 and back to Tinidazole

Pulse #37 just started and back with Tinidazole again.  I have been very week so not keen to Start ... but hey-ho, it seems that there are girlies out there with more bottle than me.  I thought that I'd better crack on.
