tickbite: sorry to hear about the DSF trouble.. that was your second round with it, right?
.. wondering if you'll have a longer lasting benefit this time. Was the second round more or less the same as the first?
Yes, this is my second round on DSF. First time was Jan to Sept last year with five month off all ABX with only minor nagging neuro sx. I had stopped abx twice before but only lasted about
3 months before sx returned each time, then restarted abx again.
Even with the second fainting episode I am still willing to give DSF another try, but just limit dosage to no more than 250mg a day. This round I was at 375 for about
two weeks, and first round i pushed myself to 500 mg in June which I thing triggered the fainting then dropped to 250mg for a month before ramping back to 375mg before stopping in Sept. I was feeling the same extreme fatigue this time around as the first, but tough to tell given my other gastro problems in parallel.
I'll see what my LLMD says next Friday. All treatment has its risks.
