Hi Girlie, was on Doxy and made moderate gains. It took me far but I plateaud. Specialist believes that this combo is the next phase to get me to the next level of meaningful recovery.
But did you try doxy with Rifampin or rifabutin and Azithromycin?
Only you can decide if the possible benefits outweigh the risks.
Eg. the fluoroquinolones are likely to be the best treatment for Bart but I’m not willing to take the risk of the side effects - maybe once I’ve exhausted the others’ with less serious effects I will.
It may be that the long qt syndrome risk is very minimal even with both those drugs combined.
My concern is that when I read about
it - it can be there without symptoms so you may not realize it’s affecting you.
How often will you be having an EKG? Or is there another test as well?
Good to hear your Dr will be monitoring you while on it.
