I have loads of regret and worry about
two of my children taking flagyl for long terms (not quite pulsed like what is commonly done nowadays). They never adversely reacted to it (to what I could tell). They even took it daily for stretches! YIKES!
I do believe we (generally speaking) overlook the side effects of some of these treatments (specifically abx but other treatments too!). Often times, we contribute a symptom to a herx, but I think it's overlooked sometimes on what these medications themselves can cause.
I try not to worry about
my kid's prior treatments and the damage they may have caused. It just makes me super sad.
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
