I would try Zhang. Antibiotics took me only so far. No side effects with the Zhang herbs for me and I feel the best I have been in over two years. The allicin did make me smell like garlic, so I use that if I have no where to go for a few days and the coptis for when I need to be around people. Only takes a day for the odor to go away. Over the past couple of days, I painted my bedroom, mowed the grass, cleaned my daughter's bedroom, weeded the garden, weeded the rock garden, moved some furniture, did laundry etc. Four months ago all I did was sleep. Doing some spackling and taping now (in between coats right now) and am hoping to trim the bushes outside and paint the trim and doors in the bedrooms before the day is over.
