Rick has stopped Rifampin and will start pulsing with Flagyl soon...
Just a brief note. Rick stopped Rifampin recenlty for some sort of test or procedure. When he restarted, the side-effects on his stomach or gastro-intestinal system were too harsh for him to continue.
He spoke with his Doctor in Sacramento - and they decided that the best course was to proceed with pulsing with Flagyl. I'm actually encouraged by this development as I haven't seen many other folks using Rifampin in place of Tini or Flagyl - and have no idea of how effective it is compared to those two.
His schedule, per his Doctor, will be 5 days on - 2 weeks off. Seems aggressive, but given he's been on Rifampin for 18 months or thereabouts - it may make sense.
I hope he starts to see more glimmers as a result!
Best & Highest Regards,
