I will be late for my own funeral. As per normal for me, I am late starting this pulse too. This is pulse 49 and will be a mixed pulse; half tinidazole and half metronidazole. I only have a few tini tabs but I have a box of 21 metronidazole (7 days supply). I'll use a few out of those for this pulse. My next pulse will be all 5 days on metro. After that, I have no idea how I will proceed. I have only ever taken metro once before ... and it was surprisingly OK.

In the meantime, I better get myself a script for some azithromycin; I only have 3 left. At least they are easy enough to pick up.

Thanks.

This mixed drug pulse is over. Apart from a week when I had a tooth abscess on holiday 18 months ago and I used metronidazole, I have always used tinidazole. The fact that tini makes things far easier - having to take it only twice a day rather than thrice with metro - made it so preferable. Three times a day is a real pain and, for me, impossible for me to give the correct gap between doses. However, I do kinda think that metro may be more effective.

My next pulse will be 5 days of Metro. I won't leave it so long this time.

I am still hoping to get lucky and to get well. I am hoping and rooting for everybody else out there to get well too. It's very much is a lottery ... and I know some of the winners.

Let's get lucky!

WellSG, if anyone should get well, it’s you.

i use Metro, although i’m considering getting Tini, for the last couple of pulses. I like Metro and use it as a reason to sit by the radio, with my dog, just taking it easy. I always look forward to an alcoholic drink, at the end of the pulse, and always notice a change,  usually good, but not always! But change, good or bad, is still a change!  Maybe you’ll change those red stilettos for some dancing shoes!
