Cycling off all antibiotics to avoid bio films???

Hi guys,

After months of searching I finally found a doc who is familiar with cpni and its treatment.  His practice is dedicated to chronic fatigue and fibromyalgiai patients and he has been treating these diseasesi as infectionsi for years. So far so good, except he cycles patients off of all antibioticsi for a week. So after a week of minoi and flagyli, you come off everything, including NACi. He said that they (he mentioned dr Kilmas) have found that bio films become a major problem if the patient stays on the antibiotics continually. 

Has anyone heard of this? It makes me very nervous because it's contrary to everything I've read over the past several months. I also feel sick after being off of antibiotics for 3-4 days (low grade fever and fatigue is crippling). I started self treating back in April and felt like a different person after a few weeks on antibiotics, I'm so scared of sliding back.....

 

I, too have been talked into biofilm fiasco.As far as I remember, theory of biofilms makes a lot of sense. Look up ILADS. Lots there. More confusion??????????????

diagnosed MSi Jan.2000 ,  chronic neurological lyme disease Nov.2002.

doxyi 100 mg. 1BID. roxyi.150 mg.? BIDi,adding rifampin soon, pulsed tinii. every 3 weeks, as of oct.17/08, rifampin,naltrexone (LDNi),NACi, nystatin, major wheldon supplemrnts daily,

Being an intracellulari pathogen, cpni isnot affected by biofilm pathogens...............................Sarah

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MSi in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Thanks Sarah. Can you suggest any literature that I can bring to my next appt?

thanks

Connie, I know you don’t have MSi but you can’t go far wrong by getting the doctor to read David’s site: www.davidwheldon.co.uk/ms-treatment.html<  I know he doesn’t mention biofilms but that is because he doesn’t see them as being relevant: the most important thing is to getrid of the infection and you don’t do that by continually stopping and re-starting the antibioticsi<.  I think that if I had done that, I would still be taking the antibiotics now, in the hope that they would eventually work! ……………………………..Sarah

is nitroxoline a good biofilm lung med?  I can't exhale at all with asthmai which started 2 months after I tried the weekly amycin.  I'm on an asv for severe sleep apnea also
