I am azith and cefdinir. My pharmacy has information about the abx that is attached to the script. Both azith and cefdinir both can create stomach problems. I was put on 500mg once a day and 250mg of cef twice a day. My stomach blew up too. I also felt extremely uncomfortable. After returning to the doc he suggested I cut the azith in half and take it seperately. He had also advised to take it five minutes before eating and that just did not work for me. I now take the pill cut in half twice a day and take it at least a half hour before eating and feel much better. I don't take the cef till after I have eaten ( a few hours later). This is not how he originally suggested to take the meds but I could not tolerate how I felt or how I looked.
I also am doing hydrotherapy cleansing at which time the nurse found parasites. I have been to two cleansings and at the last one did a coffee enema. I also take paramax three times a day to get rid of the parasites.
The bloating is almost gone and the stomach issues have greatly decreased.
My GI symptoms never progressed to the severe degree of some of you guys, but they did suddenly appear and then begin to get progressively worse when I first starting getting treated for LD back in April of last year. I starting getting pain from the gall bladder straight down to the liver area and then severe, constant flatulence. Nothing helped at all. Then I started on about 7-9 grams a day of freeze-dried garlic and within about 4 weeks the pain was totally gone. When I started on heavy supplementation of digestive enzymes and the flatulence totally went away.
Maybe this could work for some of you guys.
