Just 200mg a day of doxy right now. Do you think one dose of rifampin could cause a herx? Maybe I should just do it, not tonight but tomorrow. UGHH! Why does this have to be so hard?!!
I think if you've decided you're going to treat with antibiotics, then you need to at some point just 'do it'.
The stress alone could impact you negatively...if you're that worried about
People warned me about
Rifampin - that it might hit bart hard...and cause a bad herx...that my liver could suffer...but I don't remember it being that bad in the first few weeks - but I did start lower after I was already taking minocycline for a month.
It had no bad effects on my liver enzymes.
Have you got a solid detox regimen going?
