I had a visit to my LLMD In Training today. He and I are doing well because I have been reading and I have been saved by this forum!! But I did come away with a few questions... I have been on Cipro and Amoxicillin now for two months(??? I'm losing track of time) and he said "You're not sick enough, I think we should change the antibiotic after your next five day round". So he's changing me to Doxy and Amoxicillin. What kind of reaction should I expect with Doxy? I know it's possible the bugs are getting resistant to the Cipro but I really dread the thought of big herxing again.
We also talked about biofilms and I asked him if they were proteins and he said yes. I think it was Willowrose(???) that said she takes enzymes. If biofilms are proteins, then that makes sense. What I don't understand is that if the protease enzymes will dissolve biofilms, why pay the extra money for the nattokinase???
I was reading that Bicillin LA as an IM is almost as good as other drugs in an IV. Has anybody had any experience with this?
Last but not least, for those of you who have seen the DVD "Under Our Skin", did you know the doctor that was basically forced to leave NC (the one that Mandy in the movie used) is now practicing about four blocks from the White House????? Somehow I thought that was humorous.
