Title

Prostatitis due to chlamydia trachomatis, inflammation from doxycycline

Body

Hi everyone, I finally registered on this forum - it was not easy) I don’t know English and use Google translator, therefore I can’t express myself quite incorrectly)

I have been sick with prostatitis for 4 years, most likely due to chlamydia.
Why am I writing on this forum about chlamydial pneumonia? Because our doctors could not help me, and I did not find a forum on chlamydia trachomatis.
But since these bacteria are similar, I’ve been taking Weldon’s course for 5.5 months with some adjustments.

Comments

The antibiotics I use
Doxycycline 100 mg. 2 times a day
Azithromycin 250 mg. In one day
Metronidazole 500 mg. 2 times a day, pulse 7 days a month
Rifampicin 450 mg. 1 per day
NAC - 600 mg. 2 times a day

I also take vitamins and supplements on Weldon's course.

But I have unpleasant side effects on doxycycline
After 3 months of taking 100 mg 2 times a day, I have a tumor on my arm (I will attach a photo to the letter)
I also had other side effects (they do not cause me much discomfort), a pea-sized tumor on my neck, inflammation of the adipose on my stomach (but after 2 weeks the inflammation went away), my tooth roots hurt, my heels hurt (now they are less painful)
Now 5.5 months have passed and I continue to drink doxycycline.

Why do I think these side effects are caused by doxycycline? Since my friend took (with chlamydia) only doxycycline for 20 days, and she first had skin problems on the 20th day (my skin began to exfoliate on the 30th day, but then everything went away), and then on 25 day bartholin's inflammation began omentum, became the size of a walnut. And she underwent surgery, and this gland was removed.

I continue the course of doxycycline + azithromycin + metronidazole + rifampicin. But the swelling on the arm remains and causing me discomfort.

Have any of you had similar reactions to doxycycline?
Joint inflammation in particular of the joints of the hands?

 

My name is Denis, I am from Ukraine. 4 years ago I fell ill with prostatitis, as it turned out to be caused by chlamydia, since then I have been trying to find a cure for this disease.

No, I had no similar reactions with any of the abx but what I will say is that there is no point in taking both azithromycin and rifampicin so stop one of them, preferably azithromycin.

Also the dose for metronidazole is three times a day, not two: two times a day for Tinidazole.

Last did you wait for three months before starting on Metronidazole? You should have. Read my post to Toilveagain about that.

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Perhaps I was mistaken in writing the text: I did not have abdominal fat or sore organs. Lipoma, which arose long before chlamydia and had not previously been ill, was inflamed and damaged. Lipoma no longer hurts.
But today fillings in my teeth hurt, I also think that it is from antibiotics, before this course fillings have never been sick for 14 years.

Yes, I know that metronidazole needs to be taken 3 times a day, 500 mg each, but on the 2-3rd day of this dose I feel strong toshton and weakness, next time I will try again 3 times a day.

Yes, I started using metronidazole at 3 months.
I read your post in Toilveagain

I decided to add rifampicin because I had no improvement. And I decided to somehow improve the course, I found in one of Stratton's recommendations what can be added to doxycycline, azithromycin - rifampicin 300 mg 2 times a day

No, the prescription is three times a day, either 1200mg a day or 1500, depending on where you live.. 

The difference between 1200 and 1500 isn't that big and it depends on what you can get. 

My microbiologist husband told me that!

Hello everyone, this pulse I decided to take tinidazole 2 times a day, 500 mg, because metronidazole 3 times a day, 500 mg. for 5 days I did not tolerate it well. Today I finished the pulse of tinidazole and I feel good.
Although the feeling may depend on the manufacturer of the drug, I took metronidazole from Polish Trichopolum, tinidazole from Teva.

My bones and teeth stopped bothering me.

I already have 8 months since I started taking medications, so far I do not feel any improvement, but I will still continue to take Weldon's course.

Good luck with tinidazole. Like you I started with metronidazole. I didn't like it so swapped to tinidazole after several pulses but found the second drug far better. ABX don't have to make you feel bad to show that they are working.

Good luck with your treatment. If it works I think it will be good for many men to know!

One more thing, are you taking azithromycin or roxithromycin? I always took roxithromycin, twice a day, every day and found no trouble at all with it. Once I ran out so took àźithromycin instead. It gave me a ferocious headache and I never get headaches, so never again!

I am taking 250 mg. 1 time in 2 days. But I would not have been able to take azithromycin without the support of the gallbladder, because of azithromycin my gallstones began to hurt a lot. Therefore, I drink Gepabene (a choleretic drug) and I tolerate antibiotics with it much easier.
Weldon also recommends taking azithromycin 250 mg. 3 times a week. But it seems to me that 2 days without an antibiotic is too much, so I decided to take azithromycin 250 mg every other day.

Best answer Dennis is to do as I did and take roxithromycin instead You take that every day.

Now that it is available in the US, Stratton uses it in preference to àzithromycin.

Dear Sarah,

you mentioned taking Roxi twice a day but I think Sonal started that way but now for a long time has been taking both the doses of Doxi and Roxi together at one go in the morning. And of course during pulses metro three times a day. Should she change her routine?

stay well

Neena

I am 76 years old. My daughter-in-law was diagnosed with MS and we are all very keen for her to start this new antibiotic treatment. We hope to be able to do this in the next couple of weeks by finding a doctor willing to deal with any issues like reactions that may crop up. My daughter-in-law is 43 years old.

I have been an active poilitical journalist most of my life and have felt for a long time that there must be a cure out there for MS which the medical community has largely ignored. I am very excited by the Wheldon protocol.

I think not Neena: I took nothing else but that and the pulses. Roxy is a wonderful drug for getting into the brain and now that it is licenced in the US, it is Stratton's favourite for starting the protocol. Please be patient because you could do more harm by changing from this.

When theVanderbilt first started, they used rifampicin from the start.This was too much for many people and they gave up. They have now stopped abx completely and there is just Stratton suggesting people start with roxithromycin.  If it had been available to begin with, things might have been so very different.  Sriram did say that David seemed to have much better results than they, so why he carried on with rifampicin, i don't know.
