Thank you for that post.
When I received my first bottle of Mepron my pharmacist had never dispensed it before and basically just read what the insert said. I called my brother in law (a pharmacist in a big city) and he new nothing about the drugs mechanics, it's side effects or absorption issues.
It's through this site,, I've learned about taking it with not only food but food with fat in them, I've learned about the side effects and I've even learned how to get the think yellow stuff out of the dosage cup.
What's interesting is yesterday my above mentioned brother in law asked what was wrong, he couldn't understand why I was still sick, I'd been on Mepron/Zithro for 4 weeks "What ever you have should have cleared up by now". So choose your pharmacist carefully.
