Hi everyone! I took a very cautious approach with my very first Flagyl pulse last weekend and took only one capsule to see what the die off would be (as per Dr. Statton's advice to go slow due to a previous overwhelming reaction to Rifabutin). Luckily had no reaction so not so nervous to take the next step towards the goal of a five day pulse. First, though, I hope you can help me with two questions:
1. If I had no die-off reaction to just one 400 mg dose of Flagyl last weekend, do I still have to wait 3-4 weeks to try a full one-day pulse, or could I try a full day's worth (i.e. 3 X 400 mg) only one week later (i.e. this weekend)?
2. Do you recommend taking the Flagyl with one of the daily doxy doses or separating it from other antibiotics? For example, on a Wednesday at noon I take 100 mg doxy, 250 azithro, and di-sodium EDTA plus buluoke (I have biofilm and hypercoagulation issues). Would I just add the Flagyl to that or do I need to take the 400 mg Flagyl separately from the other abx?
Hope you can help with these questions; you are a very knowledgable and experienced bunch!
Thanks very much, Len
