Has anyone taken this, I believe it's generic for omnicef. My llmd wants me to try it, he's hoping it will target bart in a more subtle way then rifampin, since that really took me down!! I'm still struggling with the headaches daily, super blurry vision in right eye and nerve pain so there is a part of me that's really scared to start something new and herx but another part is concerned I'm not going to get better unless I do something! Wish there was some way to know what the right thing to do and what will heal us!! It seems like it's all just trial and error!

Tonya - I haven’t seen/heard that omnicef hits Bartonella.

Besides Rifampin - I think Bactrim can be useful and also combining a macrolide with a tetracycline is sometimes used (LLMD MR ) but of the three I think it’s least effective.

I do hope it works for you - what is it being paired with?

im on Cefdinir right now along with bactrim ds and minocycline....so far i havent noticed any issues...i take 1200mg a day... i mean everyone is different... i personally never reacted to any abx in a negative way so its all about trying it and seeing what happens. good luck!

I was on cefdinir and mino. I didn't notice any major issues other than candida. I definitely improved on the abx.
