If you break it in half - then you are taking half the dose - so breaking your 250 mg will give you 125 mg.

The antibiotics can worsen your current symptoms (ones you had prior to treatment) - it’s called a herx. It’s caused by the overload of toxins created from the die off of bacteria.

Regular detoxing can help with this.

scooterbug - Please know that it does get better with continued treatment.


Send me an email, okay?

maybe you need to take a break from the antibiotics......and then take it from there...once you are feeling a bit better.

I am posting this for you...just in case.
