I'm supposed to take flagyl 3 times a day in a cycle of 4 days on, 3 days off. I'm not taking any other antibiotic for lyme with it due to their conflict with mepron, which I'm on. I am taking clarithromycin with the mepron, though it is for the babesia, not sure if it helps with lyme at all, anyone know?
I am having a real hard time with flagyl. I had to stop taking it yet again. It causes me way too much pain and nausea, especially in the liver area, and nasty headaches even worse than what I get from mepron/clarithromycin, and it makes it real hard to get me to eat like I'm supposed to for the mepron (needs fat to be absorbed). Not to mention that if you don't eat a substantial enough meal with flagyl the nausea is even worse. Ugh!
Could not say that I have had any improvements with flagyl, just know it is killing the little buggers from the toxic overload I get. Even though the pain and nausea are side affects of the flagyl, I get other pains that I always get with lyme dying. I've also not been able to stay on it long enough to really accomplish anything.
