Rifampicin + Tinidazole possible?
I have a question for those of you who are familiar with microbiology (maybe DW?). It seems that I have developed an allergy against tetracyclines. The azithromycin gave me tachycardia, so my doc said I have to stop it immediately.
My doc now described me rifampicin + tinidazole. I know that rifampicin must not be given alone because of possible resistance development. What I'm not sure about is, if tinidazole is the right partner for rifa. As far as I know, it works only for the "dormant" stage forms. So the question is, if we should add another antibiotic such as cotrim. Or is the prescribed combination just fine?
May I try roxythromycin instead of azithromycin? Is it safer regarding tachycardia?
