Metro - dosage

Hi! :)

This is Gisel.la again. I started the protocol the 1st of June and it is still ongoing. 

After all these months though, I am having a naive doubt, I tried to look for it in the Protocol, but I am still not sure I am doing it correctly. 

I do have doubts about the correct amount of Metronidazol. For the moment I have been taking dosages of 250mg per day, 5 days at the beginning of each month alltogether with the Doxyi and the Azitro. 

I was reading the Protocol again and, does it mention 400mg 3 times a day? I am afraid I have been short on dosages for it. 

Thanks a lot for your advise! :)

I think I got the answer in: "Flagyl (metronidazole) versus Tinidazole (Tinactin): differential responses?<"

I guess I should higher the dose... I'll try today as I am in the pulse week. 

What would be the optimal dose, independently of how one feels? A pulse comprehends 5 or 7 days?

Once the Protocol finishes, is there any way or place to test if there is any rest of bacteria in the blood cells?

Hi Barcelona!

Well, this is a spooky but fortunate coincidence. I have pulsed many times before ... but virtually always with tinidazole. This last pulse of mine was with metronidazolei. I never really looked at the box until just now ... because I was going to answer your query. Now that I look at my package of Spanish metronidazole tablets, I realise that I just got it wrong! My metronidazole tablets are only 250mg each. This protocol requires that one takes either 400mg or 500mg of metronidazole (Flagyl) three times per day. That is 1,500mg a day. I have just done a pulse on half dose.

Real problems here tonight. For the seventh time of trying - after finding that half of my aboba post is missing - I try to edit; delete and paste in the full / complete post ... and after I click save, it's back to exactly the same as it was.

One more try:  Hi Barcelona!

Thanks a lot Supaguy-Arfa! ;p

(I have to tell I do not really know what Arfa means nor understood the joke... OMG!) :)

Yesterday I took 2 of 250mg. I am not sure if I am having any sort of flu or if it was the metroi... but something was going on inside my joints, the back of my neck and my brain. 

I'll keep on highering (highering... can you use it as a verb?) the dose till 1.500mg a day. 

Once again, thanks a lot!!! :) I'll keep on updating... more doubts will come. :)

Gisel.la, I think I like the word 'highering' in place of 'raising!'  However, if you want to raise the dose to be as near as possible to the recommended dose, why not try to work up to two 250mg twice a day and then just one for the third dose?

As for the length of the pulse, after a while some people try to take it for much longer, but it made me so depressed that I have never taken it for more than five days, often four and two third days!...............................Sarah

Sarah! :D

Well, I have no clue how could it happen, but I just have been taking 250mg a day during 5 days in the last pulses... bad...

Yesterday I already started with 1.200mg. It is funny how my joints and skull react to it, and even funnier to see Mike standing my crying sessions...

Noone said it would be easy, but this too will pass. :)

I am afraid though, I'll become the eternal pulser to compensate the lack of mg in the last ones. O.o

I keep on going! :)

The Gremlins have been at work on this site. Here is the other half of my my message that just would not save:

"

Anyway, all the dosages are written here on the Getting Started page.

I need to get myself some more metronidazolei ... as do you. We both need to be taking 3 x 500mg a day for five days.

The bacteria that we are trying to kill when we take metronidazole or tinidazole are not "in the blood". Metronidazole (or tinidazole) are taken in order to kill chlamydia pneumoniae that are hibernating away within some of your living cells.

I hope that this has been of help my friend.

XDDDD

Thanks Supaguy! It feels good to laugh a bit. :) 

Wet Gremlins took your PC... ;)

I like to think about the Metroi as the one which goes to the nests of the bacteria... though, my dosages were wrong, and not just by the half. I have no clue how such a mistake could just happened. I feel a bit dumb. (Or a lot).

Anyway, this week has been full on. So I consider it my fist (delayed) pulse. 1.200mg a day during 7 days. 

Once again, thanks a lot lot lot. :D

No Gisel.la,

you are not dumb! Your condition is! And it’s dying, little by little!

the main thing is that you’re taking the CAPi, although the correct doses are better!

But as for the doses, it takes many people absolutely ages to get up to the correct dose: some people unfortunately never do.  You should find it easier because you didn't rush into it: you allowed the bacteristatics to do a little killing themselves before the heavies came in.......................Sarah

Ow guys...

Feeling emotional here. :')

I will never ever be able to pay you back, not in a million lives. <3
