I'm on oral AB (Biaxin/Ciprobay/Tindamax), this is my 3.week on it but i feel nothing.
I'm afraid oral AB is not enough for me and I will need I.V. AB, but I know my doctor gives I.V. AB for only 30 days ang he only gives Rocephin.
I would like to know what do you think how long is the minimum time for I.V.AB (Rocephin)?
I have another question. If I feel nothing at the 3.week of AB, can I be sure that this oral AB doesn't work for me?
While it's not necessarily indicative of tx failure that you've not experienced any change in your sxs after just 3 weeks, it does seem likely you'd have noticed some change by now. Intravenous Rocephin comes with significantly more risks and greater cost, so you might want to review your dosage level with your physician first before considering a different route.
In answer to the IV tx length, I started with 8 weeks, then my physician and I decided to extend it another 4.
