I see that some on here take the ave. dose of drugs and others (phsinvent for one) are
or have taken way higher. I don't like the idea that one size fits most and it concerns
me that I may not be taking a dose I should to really put a dent in this crap.

I am 5'10" and 170 lbs. Does this put me in the ave dose prescribed? Anyone have
a website that I might find my optimal dose?

I am on Biaxin, hydroxychoroquin, and Doxy.

Any ideas welcome.

OK my brain was clear enough to read back a ways and phsinvent recommended
500 per 50lbs for Biaxin. So, I take 1000 a day. Should I be double? Do you guys even
think a doc would do this? Since phsinvent does his own he could do anything he wanted.
Wish this was my case. I'd try it. Anyway, I know you guys aren't docs but I do
value your opinions.

Yeah 1000mg of biaxin is fine. I've gone up to 2000mg and i'm about the same weight as you. 175lbs. I'm a risk taker and i wouldn't go any higher than 1500mg if i was you. But for instance. You take a girl that weighs 110 lbs that is doing 400mg doxy and me at 175lbs. I think i would be the one getting shorted.

Although, i wouldn't increase the plaquenil dose. You can also get away with max of 600mg of doxy with your weight.
