Thirteenth pulse of metronidazole (1,500 mg/day) plus Isoniazid (300 mg/day) completed today.  Since about pulse seven I've felt "energized" during the pulse and have had little post-pulse reaction.  This pulse was different with reaction (lethargy, confusion, pain in various areas) starting two days into the pulse.  I'll keep you posted on the post-pulse reaction.

LIGHTLY HAMMERED? Is that like 'a little bit pregnant'? Of course, with thirteen pulses in thirteen months, i'd say it's the cpn that's being hammered, HD. Impressive!

I see "hammering" as something that can occur in degrees.  One person might find that they are incapable of self-care while another can care for themselves but is unable to get up and go to work.  In my case, I definitely fell into the later category, hence the addition of "lightly". 

CAP for M.S. 8/2007 - 3/2009.  Twentieth pulse metronidazole + INH completed 3/12/2009.  Intermittent treatment thereafter until 11/20/2009.
