Does anyone know what dosage is normal for Clindamycin HCL?

My LLMD has me taking 150 mg 3 times a day. I did a search online and this dosage seems very low.

Has anyone taken this before?

I am only taking it on Tuesday & Thursday. Then Biaxin 1000 mg the other days. Before I was taking Doxy 600 mg & Biaxin 1500 mg. Both of them every day before.

Is it just me or does this new treatment plan seem like a step backwards?

I could really use some advice bc I just got a new LLMD who is 12 hrs away. I want to make sure I shouldn't talk to him about a new plan.

The reason I wonder is bc I feel worse, not herx worse, but like I am going backwards. My old symptoms are coming back as if I went off abx.

Fatigue, heart palps & twitching are all back after improving.

Any advice or ideas would be great! thanks

Not a step backwards... Dr J ( SC) uses it now on most patients ... There was a recent interview with him... It is finding bugs that were hiding out...

Do you think the dosages should be higher though? I was on 1500 mg of Biaxin and now it's 1000 mg. Then when I read on line about dosages for the Clindamycin I found like 900 + mg a day! Thanks
