Hi, I am new to this forum. I just wanted to see if anyone has the same symptoms and on the same medication. I have a lot of symptoms but my most serious are depersonalization, anxiety, joint plain, night sweats, headaches, dizziness (motion dizziness), ear plugged and loud noise in ears. I was diagnosed in January and have been on doxycycline till I realized that my dr had no idea what was happening. I went and saw a LLMD a few days ago. Here’s what he put me on-Biaxin-One tablet twice a day 500 mg
Amoxicillin-One tablet by mouth twice a day 875- 125 mg
Rifampin-One tablet by mouth twice a day 300 mg
Mepron 1 teaspoon two times a day seven 50 mg per 5 ML 210 ML
Also with probiotics/supplements. I am just starting to introduce one at a time. So far no reactions as I am very sensitive to medication. I am supposed to take them 2 x a day but I am starting out with 1x a day and slowly adding the 2nd dose.
Anyone else have ever been on these meds? Just curious how you did. Thank you!
Hi Tiffany - welcome!
Out of your list of symptoms, I have or have had: anxiety, joint pain, night (and day) sweats, tinnitus (not the noise, but the pulsatile form)....plus more...about
That's a strong protocol you are currently on. I am surprised that you are taking Rifampin and Mepron together. They aren't usually taken together as the Rifampin can make the atovaquone (mepron) less effective.
I have been on Rifampin,Mepron, biaxin, and amoxy - not all at the same time though.
Good to see you are detoxing. You should consider doing more though.
- light exercise (even a short walk)
- dry brushing your skin prior to bathing or showering
- Brain detox: Nutramedix Pinella or Jernigan's Neuro Antitox: CNS/PNS II
- take a binder - must be a few hours away from your antibiotics, supplements
Are you taking probiotics? This is a must.
