What started as a severe sinus problem is now in my chest (again). I am still having debilitating malaise, deep chest coughing, running a low grade fever off and on. I have been taking Tini continuously now for a little over a month (as well as Doxy and Roxi). I am still doing the neti pot, Mucinex (seems to help), nasal sprays, etc. I still have what appears to be swelling in the mandibular area of my face.
I had my dr.'s appt. on the 23rd and we discussed the different stages of the protocol. He really wants me to add Rifampin. I think I need to stay on the Tini longer and maybe add Amoxicillian. I don't know.....I just know that I am not keeping ahead of this or I've hit some type of plateau.
I'm not sure what direction to go;additionally, I need to be on top of my yeast situation as well.
Any thoughts from my long-term CPN comrades regarding adding the Rifampin. Any input from those of you who are on it? Thus far, after 3 plus years, I've not had any liver issues.
Thanks for your thoughts.
