10 more days until my appointment with my LLMD...
In the mean time, I wonder what can I do to maximize the effect and absorbtion of abx?
I take amoxacillin 3x day 500.
I also take Levothyroxine.

Simela, I'm not surprised you're not getting more 'bang' from the amoxicillin. It has to be in higher doses plus combined with another drug for it to be effective. The dose you're taking is probably keeping the critters halfway in line but not doing a massive kill. Even if you were able to find something to maximize the effect and absorption, I don't think it's going to be any better than it is. Read Dr. Barrascano's (sp?) Guidelines 2008. He specifically talks about amoxicillin not being effective unless it's in high doses. I'm doing 875 mg. of amoxicillin 3 x a day with Cipro 500 mg 2 x day and will be switching to doxy and amoxicillin in about 10 days.

Take care...you're almost to appt. day!!
