Hi All, I started Doxy 3 weeks ago, could only take for 2 weeks too many bathroom trips although I felt better mentally. My doc switched me to generic Omnicef so I started that today. I noticed when I'm off antibiotics I get the worst night sweats and my doc says that my immune system fighting off bacteria. Now that I'm off Doxy though, my Ulcertive Colitis is so bad, worse than when I was on it and I thought being on Doxy was bad, lots of bloody stools, but today as I wrote, I started Omnicef and hopefully this will help.
I'm also back to taking liquid Nystantin, I just stopped everything for a week to give my body a rest. Someone posted a link on GI issue with Lymes and CP infections, and I appreciated that b/cuz one patient story, she had UC and pulsed with antibiotics for a year and was cured so I'm staying hopeful. I just want to feel good on one of these antibiotics.
Do you know if Omnicef effects birth control pills, I have not read about this one as there was a lot posted on Doxy effecting birth control pills.
Is there many of you out there with colon problems from having Lyme's?
Hugs to all and Thanks.
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild") UC.Just found out 4 years into it I might have Lyme's Disease, going to a LLMD in December. Confirmed Lymes on 12/8/09 before my new antibiotic protocal from my LLMD, I Started and stopped LDN ON 1/25/09 to mid May no improvements. Tried Asacol, Pentesa, Colozol, Sulfasulsadine and Lialda, they made me worse. A range of antibiotics, not much better. Supplements: Threelac, multi, iron,Allimed Allicin, Apple Cider Vinegar, very low yeast/sugar/wheat No UC meds at this time.
