How do you rebound after an antibiotics break? I took a killing break for two weeks from all anti-parasitics and antibiotics. I started half a dose of rifampin and alinia back last week, and I have been herxing so much the past few days. I didn't think I would lose that much ground, but I am back to several of the symptoms that I had before even starting this protocol back in February. Outside of detoxing what else do I need to be doing? I hate feeling like I lost so much ground in just two weeks. It's kind of depressing seeing that I can't even go two weeks without drugs right now. I wanted to start them back slowly, working my way back up to full dose of Doxy, Rifampin, and Alinia. So glad I did. Are there any herbs that I could be taking to help build my body back up? Thanks!
Is it your Dr. telling you to take the 2 weeks break? If so, maybe discuss this with him - what's happening...maybe he will change it to only 1 week off.
Sounds like you are regressing some after the 2 weeks.
