Hi,
I saw a LLMD today and he added Ceftin. I am currently on Doxy (200mg 2x a day). What should I expect from this combo? So far, I am fine with the Doxy alone but I am worried about adding the Ceftin and dealing with stomach upset. On weekends I am to take Flagyl with the Ceftin.
Thanks!

My LLMD just added in Ceftin, which I started on 3/27. I'm also on Zithromax and Septra - just stopped Tindamax and Plaquenil. I'm tolerating it fine as far as my stomach goes, but I have tolerated most of the meds pretty well. I think this is because I'm very careful with my diet - no sugar, processed foods, etc. and take probiotics and nystatin.
 
I do think the Ceftin may be causing a herx, though, as I started having those intense aches and pains throughout my body (flu-like feeling) about three days after I started it. It's been awhile since I've had this. Hopefully, that's a good thing.

I am on my 4th day and I was SO tired today.  I am hoping it gets better. I am assuming a herx.  I am also due to get my period.  I am worried about starting the Flagyl on Monday. I will only be on it 2 days at a time.
