I was on flagyl and amocycillin for almost a yr with an abscess, waiting for surgery and healing etc….. I went off it at one stage after my seton was 1st inserted and the sepsis returned so fast it wasn’t funny……. So I hopped back onto the antibiotic bandwagon. I know that when I was taking 3 flagyl a day I had a lot of nervousness and anxiety issues, but on 2 a day I was fine. Also on 3 a day (which is an aggressive dose) I had no appetite and felt nauseas nearly all the time….
I remember the 1st week I ever took the antis in a combination like that – I remember thinking I had SO much more energy at work, didn’t need to sleep so much, and my tummy symptoms really improved and I was less sensitive in relation to what I could eat etc….. I think the antis were killing off an overgrowth of bacteria as happens in us chronnies….. My symptoms got better all round. Unfortunately when I went off the antis the worse symptoms returned. Now I am waiting on my first dose of Remicade and hoping it will held heal my fistula….. I still have the mushroom drain in my abscess…..
