Confused on supplement schedule

Submitted by macorn on Mon, 2009-12-07 13:06

In a recent post from LouLou she mentioned taking her abx and then her supplements two hours later.  That's NOT how I do it!!!  In AM I take abx with coffee, in about an hour I have my breakfast and take supps.  OR I may take them all together.  In the 4:00PM, I do the same thing; abx all together or maybe separated by about an hour (without food).  I have dinner around 6:00PM. I thought this as OK; at last that's how I understood it.  I just reviewed the handbook and didn't read that the two-hour separation between abx and supplements was required.  BTW, I do take the calcium and magnesium alone before bed.  Since changing from Flagh to Tini, I have no problem taking abx or supplements 

The reason I am very concerned is because I haven't had success with CAP and have become much more disabled.  HELP. 

 

 

I take the rifampin on its own, not with the other antis. of which rifampin is one. So 2 hrs. antis. 2 hours later rifampin on its own, 2 hours following the other supplements.

Good Luck!

Mary Ann, the only things you need to take two hours apart from abx are calcium and charcoal.  I tended to take all the rest together in two stages..............Sarah

Probiotics apart from antibioticis.

I thought we had a reason for keeping D3 in the evening and C in the morning, but I can't find it.  Kim takes most her calcium when she takes the D3.  Or maybe the idea was to keep D3 apart from Ibuprofen.

I need to keep better notes.  I'm lousy about documenting things.  Image removed. Ken

And probiotics of course!  But then, pros and antis have never got on.  Life is to short to timetable everything else, though, but you can but you can take nitromidazoles together with probiotics.............Sarah
