Change of antibiotics for the rest of the protocol?


Hi there!

I am in my 18th pulse... and since the beginning I have been under Doxy, Azithro, Metro.

I have been extremely moody and lately depressed...

I was wondering if it would be wise to change them for Doxy, R...??? (Something starting by R), and Abonex?

Could this possibly help? I have lots of Azithro and Metro... (got them in advanced for in case...)

I am not sure how to ask for the prescription to my GP... anyone who bought them safely somehow without prescription?

Thanks a lot!!! 😊


Gisel.la, is the depression worse during pulses? The moodiness will most probably be caused by metronidazole, so the most likely thing to change is that for tinidazole.

If it really is just all the time depression, the next thing to try would be azithromycin for roxithromycin, which most people do find easier to take, but remember that you need to take it every day.

Then there is rifampicin,  which I took for six months in place of doxycycline: you will find doxycycline easier to take than that.

If by Abonex, you mean Avonex, please don't say rude words on this site!
