Phillips spoke a lot about his current treatment approaches, a lot of what we heard here on the forum. nothing jumped out at me different than what i heard already. he likes to reserve the use of harder drugs like cipro, bactrim, rifampin for people that dont respond, to spare them of the harder side effects, and use drugs that have less of an impact on the body.
Thanks for reporting back, Don!
I didn't realize that Dr. P didn't hit Bartonella with Bactrim or Rifampin right away.
Don't most people tolerate rifampin fairly well?
I can understand the Cipro.
