I'm taking all rifampin at once (900 mg) because i feel easy to tolerate that if i took twice day (stomach cramps, nausea etc...) i notice the same gi side effects with 900 at once than 450. But rifampin has a half life of 2,5 hours... If i take it at once... Will it be effective? Taking it twice day attack bartonella twice day right?
I think most llmd’s prescribe it twice daily but some llmd’s do once daily dosing.
This is with the 300x2 vs 600 mg dose.
Can’t remember why you’re not taking Rifabutin - I think I already asked you - but don’t recall the answer??
It’s way stronger - it has caused a herx like I’ve never had before with any of the lyme and co’s abx.
The herxes are lessening as time goes on (so far)
