Hi. My LLMD wants me to take the following oral antibiotics for 6-8 weeks:
- Zithromax (Azithromycin) 500mg - Pulsed on Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
- Rifampicin 2x 150mg per day - morning and evening - daily ingestion starting in the 2nd week. Is this dose high enough?
- Artemisia annua as a cyst buster
I'm already suffering from heart palpitations every couple of days.Is it safe for me to take Azithromycin 500mg ?
My QTc interval was below 400 ms in the short-term electrocardiogram but that doesn't mean that my QTc interval is within the norm in the 24h electrocardiogram.Does it even make sense to take this combo without adding in the Minocycline?
My LLMD doesn't think I'm healthy enough to add the minocycline into the mix just yet as it can cause some ugly side-effects in the head (head pressure and what not) but perhaps that's exactly what I need because I've had these horrible lightning bolt head aches for over a year and I can barely sleep at all.Should I take Bactrim instead of the Zithromax because of my already existing heart palpitations?
Is it just as effective in treating Lyme and the coinfections? I've got Lyme, Bartonella and a couple of other nasty critters throwing a party inside my body.
Is it better to take these substances intravenously? I need something that penetrates the BBB (blood brain barrier) and achieves high enough concentrations in the CSF (cerebrospinal fluid).
Can oral antibiotics achieve this?
I'm really scared to take the Zithromax after reading the instruction manual. So many side-effects :S
Thanks for your input!
