I just called an LLMD I used to see back in 2013 and asked him about Antabuse. He said he's used on patients and they saw a little bit of improvement but nothing dramatic.

He said he was willing to possibly try it on me but this is a big let down. Maybe it needs to be combined with something like a biofilm buster and they will figure it out. One can only hope.

So that's the Disulfiram.


Some LLMD's are using Dapsone for persisters - maybe that could be an option as well.

well that explains why Kim Lewis has never published that "successful mouse study"...
that is quite disappointing ... sad
