NAC versus Amoxicillin
6 Sep 2008
In describing the work done at Vanderbilt, the CPN Handbook observes that Dr. Stratton used Amoxicillin. Dr. Wheldon's protocol uses NAC. I understand that both work on the CPn Elementary Bodies and that NAC is easier on intestinal flora as well as being protective of the liver. That aside, are there co-infections that would be vulnerable to Amoxicillin but not to NAC? Could the CAP be done with Amoxicillin rather than NAC? Or with Amoxicillin in addition to NAC?
