Tinidazole - response time to effect during pulses

 Tinidiazole, I am wondering if the fever that I have today might still be immunei response to pulse #4 started 1/301/08 and finished 2/3/08.  That makes today day 15 since the start of the pulse. 

I thought I was breezing through a viral cold, Monday and Tuesday, today I wake with fever 99.7, chills, headache, cold hands, achey shoulder, upper chest, neck area, in the locations of the lymph system. Also cold hands and feet, more fatigue. 

So I wonder there has been talk that Tini takes longer to work and works longer after the pulse.  Any folks that take Tini regularly have any comments to share about how it works for them?   My first full pulse I had a higher fever on day 9 and a slight one on day 12.   This may be a combination situation perhaps.    

Help! Titanium Dioxide In Antibotics

I have just read that one of the inactive ingredients in both Roxithromycin, Azithromycin, Flagyli & Tini is Titanium Dioxide.

Paula thinks she possibly may have an allergy to this substance. Frown

Does anyone know of any brands of the above that does not have Titanium Dioxide in it?



Pulse Protocol

Has anyone done the pulse without the doxyi or zythro , and then resumed them when the tini pulse is done. I couldn't seem to do more than a 3 day pulse of 500 tini 2x day with the other abxi because i became too nauseated . My dr suggested I try this so that I could take more tini since that is what kills it. He is as new to all this as I am, so I'm looking for feedback. I'm very shy about posting as I am affraid I'm not doing it right...not to mention my spelling. I wish there were instructions on how to use this sight. ie. signatures, posts vs. comments,or topics, term abreviations etc rog777 capi since 2006

Number this Pulse? CFS/ME, Cpn & CAP: a complex thang!

We’ve had a big influx of members with CFSi/ME in the past year, especially with my article appearing in a web CFS newsletter. Getting on the CAPi is confusing enough, and difficult enough for this group, so I have been reluctant to report my own particular experiments and treatment results so as not to add more confusion. My story on the Patient Stories pages is accurate and honest: I report a 60-68% improvement using the CAP for Cpni, and that some particular symptoms have not improved as much as I would like. But it begs the question about what can someone with CFS/ME expect from Cpn CAP treatment?

Antibiotics and antimicrobials; tablets vs capsules when available and generic vs brand names

My question primarily is from a user perspective, regarding the cost/vs side effects  of purchasing brand name capsules vs tablet forms when there is a choice. 

Cost seems to often be in favor of the tablet form. 

For those with no stomach distress with the capsules, seems either might be fine. 

For those with stomach respsonse to the capsules (such as myself) I have now realized that I do have a choice of the tablet form,

as well as a higher priced choice of another brand name Doryx that is reported to have less stomach response symptoms. Reported to be newer and more costly than either the tablet generic or the capsule generic.

Taking a break from continuous

I've upped my INHi to full dose now, which engendered more sacroilliac and lumbar back ache, but seemed otherwise manageable. But I've decided to take a break on the continuous tini which I've been doing for a couple months. I'm on vacation and noticed with the increase in sunshine (Vit D?) and increase in INH that I have felt continually cruddy. Not smart on vacation! So I'm interested to see what the pattern is just on the regular antibioticsi. I'm particularly curious about post-pulse type symptoms (apoptosisi and cleanup) and cycling, which have been impossible to discern on a continous protocol. Always the fine balance between killing the buggers and having time to actually feel better!

Antibiotics useful against CPn which cross the blood brain barrier well?

I recently recovered some information from the former web site of Dr. Sririam pertaining to the usefullness of antibioticsi against Cpni and which ones will cross the blood brain barrier.  What I don't know is how accurate this information is or why some antibiotics that appear to be less effective at crossing the blood  brain barrier were chosen.  Why the latter question?  Because at least one of the doctors who have devised protocolsi did so with the specific objective of treating Multiple Sclerosisi, a neurological disease.  Crossing the blood brain barrier is critical in the success of such a treatment.

Blurred Locomotion, Fuzzy Reality

It has happened again - tinadazole is easy for me but the aftermath is no gain. Last year I did three pulses of tinii because of the National Dairy Goat Show - I simply did not have time to be "out of the loop" - (loopy, that is!) so it was an excellent time to try this magical drug that didn't send you reeling to the bottom of the well. After days of waiting for events to occurI realized they weren't going to. They didn't; nothing happened that I could tell, except that my walking became - well - mushy. So I went back to flagyli. I have done nine or ten of flagyl with very clear- cut inprovements since then. Spring came (?) again, bringing 23 kids (one of these days, we will figure out what's causing that!), hours in the barn, classification, etc.

Continuous Flagyl??? Yes!

I never would have believed this a year ago, but I've been taking Flagyli for the last three days of my continuous protocol. Early on the nausea from Flagyl made me switch to Tinidazole. But I decided to try some Flagyl and noticed that it gives me more energy and clearer thinking than the Tini. I think there is reason to believe that it is a bit more effective than the Tini-- I have increased sinus drainage, some increased joint pain and the energy increase. Maybe there has been some bacterial resistance to Tini, from having used it for two years, that there isn't to Flagyl. Who knows? At any rate, I'll see if I can maintain continous flagyl, as it's only three days on the switch. Sometimes reactions build up.

Help I am so confused

I am still trying to get a grasp on Chlamydia Pneumoniae, I just found out on 4-11-07.  But I have been sick for awhile  Cry.  I am just starting Antibioticsi again......eeeeek Foot in mouth.  My symptoms have been sinus infections and uppper respitory infections , Phlaringitis, Broncotitis, Asthmai.  In and out of the Dr. office the month of April, and my throat swelled shut I could go on and on.  I ended up at an Infetious disease Dr.

Continuous Treatment

I haven't blogged my treatment for a while, as I've been waiting to see if I would stick with a shift in protocol. So far, still with it, so thought it might be time to report in and get other's thoughts. New folks, please read this as informational only. It does help clarify Dr. Stratton's use of the continuous rather than pulsed protocol, but the rest of the hypotheses here are presented as my own speculations, not scientific fact.

Pulse 22 started: Country-Western Style!

This is mostly to mark that I'm day 2 on pulse 22 so I don't forget to keep record. This one is not as bad as the first one on Rifampin (pulse 20) but more of a hit than the last pulse in terms of inflammatory pain. I'm still at one capsule of Rifampin per day as I haven't worked up the gumption or masochism to go to full dose (2 caps per day) yet.

Awoke this morning hurting all over, and thought I'd be misreable for the rest of the day. Did one of Raven's Famous Epsom Salt Baths and it cleared all the hurt like magic. Now, if it would just work on clearing the hurt of my personal life... go soak my head? My heart? Oh, oh. Sounding like a country-western song coming on:

Oh I wish my Epsom Salts could cure my aching heart, just like the way it cures my aching joints...

The news from Lake Pulse Begone: Pulse 21 finished

I just realized that I never commented on the finish to this pulse. The reset of the pulse after the Vit C flush was not uneventful, but not unexpected for my 'average' pulse.

I carried through the Thanksgiving holiday and continued for a total of 6 days. I had a wave of pain and inflammationi after each dose, and one evening where I was completely wiped out and irritable (porphyrins?). Did some powdered charcoal and added Yaemon Chlorella to my regime which may be helping.

Post-pulse- some periods of severe irritability-- yelling and cursing at mechanical objects that were not "cooperating" by doing what I wanted--- which I attribute to post-pulse apoptosisi and dump of porphyrins en masse into my blood stream. Now I'm on vacation and enjoying the let-down feeling as I slow down and relax.
