So sorry to hear that, C_G_K. You might consider (?) rifaxamin? It is fairly cheap if purchased from a Canadian (that is to say, distributor of Indian) online rx. I realize rifaximin is broad spectrum, but unlike the triple-ABX therapy you did before, it is strictly local to the gut and non-systemic. That said, I dont blame you- I have a stockpile of rifaximin (Indian via Canada) on hand now but am keeping it for a "maybe" if i am desperate one day.
You might want to try, along with whatever else you do, surging probiotics- taking $30-40 a day of exoensive probiotics for a week or two- it does seem to help me knock down flares and /or assist and/or spare other meds.
