girlie that's interesting. antibiotics are weird that way. I got really anxious on Dapsone.
I think I was somewhat anxious on dapsone and daraprim - because I read about
the risks/side effects (more than once) and the Methemoglobinemia (I spelled it wrong) really freaked me out. Plus I had some really bad herxes that I thought might be Sepsis...
A couple months later after I was almost finished that protocol I asked DrJ about
it and if he’d seen it happen - (the Methmoglobinemia) he said he had (I think he said a couple times) but not at his practice.
He told me then that I was reacting to the Rifabutin.
I got off the phone and told my husband I didn’t think he was right because I had taken the similar med - Rifampin for over a year with no herxes like that.
A couple months later - the Daraprim and Dapsone were taken out of my protocol and I was on Rifabutin plus two other abx.
...And I herxed similarly - Dr J WAS right - I was herxing hard on Rifabutin
