Oh bleurch

OK I wish to complain. There I am, happily doing CAP. Everything going along swimmingly and then I start my first pulse.

Well day 1 was fine. 1 Metro - no real issues.

Day 2 - 1 Metro - also fine apart from a sticky eyelid problem

Day 3 - 1 Metro - feeling decidedly odd. Very queazy in the morning which drove me back to bed. Fine later on.

I decided at this point that 3 days was enough of a pulse for the first one. However, I now seem to be having queazy issues every morning. I can only assume the Metro has set off a reaction to Doxy that I never had before as this feeling seems to come on after my morning abx.

I'm thinking of moving them to late night so I can sleep off the queazies. Anyone else do this or have any warnings about night time abx?

 

This falls under my category marked "stirring the pot". This has a subheading by Ruth called "expect the unexpected", or "wake a sleeping dog at your own peril". Another capper blindsided as we watch.
All joking aside, moving abx to night is something that appeals to me, certainly it would if I were in yuor position. The only cautions I can think of are to stop food intake or supps 1 or 2 hours ahead, depending on what it is, and not to lie down for a half hour after takiing Doxy.

3/9 Symptoms returning. Began 5 abx protocol 5/9 Rifampin 600, Amox 1000, Doxy 200, MWF Azith 250, flagyl 1000 daily. Began Sept 04 PPMS EDSS 6.7 Now good days EDSS 1 Mind, like parachute, work only when open. Charlie Chan  In for the duration.&am

Things will get better. I think initial die off is the worst. #1 and 2 were hell for me but#3 is going without incedent approx 2 continuous weeks now. Initial treatment affected me hard too but it did get better and probably will for you as well.

I would rather deal with the nausea during the day rather than be woken up by it. I find that it does lessen as time goes by but I still have ginger in all it's forms handy for the odd time that it happens now.

There is one small problem with that, I can't stand Ginger, unless it's mixed in with curry. Image removed.

Based on the fact that getting the queazies during the morning is only solved by going back to bed and sleeping it off, I figure the taking it at night approach might work. As I don't have any client visits to do on Wednesday I think I'll switch the Doxy and take it with my evening meal then retire to bed if I start to feel sick. Won't matter if I'm up during the night.

It's all my own fault for saying I'm sailing along. Somebody up there decided to teach me a lesson.

Well here goes nothing. Night time abx test begins. If I'm still posting at 3am then it didn't work.

I took 200mg doxy and 400mg flagyl this morning at about the same time and I was pretty ill until I drank 1 liter of water and had some food.  Just took another 400mg flagyl after lunch and I am doing ok.  We will see how tomorrow goes...tomorrow is supposed to be the tri-fecta doxy, azith and flagyl...YIKES.

Well it's not 3am, actually just gone midnight and apart from appalling sweats which may just be down to the weather, I'm OK, no nausea which I would normally have had by now. So either pm abx is the route or the pulse effects have worn off.

Good luck Grumps. My stomach sympathises. Image removed.

YAY! It worked. No nausea whatsoever, or at least, if I got it I slept through it.

Carol, tell me about it, eventually I had to turn on the air-con to get to sleep. I had all the windows wide open and not a breath of air which, considering how windy it's been recently is a bit annoying. Nothing worse than trying to sleep in a puddle of cold sweat. YUK.
