Sjogren's and Flagyl

Found this site through a search.  I saw an old post from someone by the name "Lee", that used a protocol that emphazied Flagyli for treatment of Sjogren's, which I was diagnosed earlier this year.  This thing is really causing havoc for me.  I have been using Minocycline, but it keeps progressing anyway.  Saw the post which was stated that pulsing Flagyl made the difference.  Took my first dose today, but it really made it workse, maybe a Herx??  I sure hope so.

Has anyone had experience with Sjogren's and antibioticsi? Thanks.

Any chance that was Lee McGhee?

This isn't a conventional course of antibioticsi, where you take your medicine and you simply get better.  When the antibiotics hit this bacteria, there's a battle, which causes inflammationi, which results in what appears to be 'making it worse'.  It isn't.

You need to slow down a minute and do a lot of reading here, rather than diving into self-medicating.  Too much, too soon, will not be helpful and can even be harmful.  While you're waiting for responses on Sjogren's, go to Dr. Wheldon's pages and read his rationale for the protocol, how it's administered and why.  Ignore the MSi references and just substitute 'cpni' in your head as you read through it.    http://www.davidwheldon.co.uk/ms-treatment.html<

Thanks for the info.  Not sure of the last name, only saw the name "Lee" in the posts,they were in 2007.

 

The minocycline my doc prescribed, the Flagyli was my idea.  I only took 250mg today to see how I reacted, within one hour I went downhill.  Waiting to see what happens over the next day or so.  I will take a look at the section you mentioned, thanks.

I think you're on the right track with flagyli it really works

I also use Essential oils and get a similar but not as strong reaction

Don't listen to Mac she doesn't know what she's talking about  ....lurking around this website all day dispensing advice  to everyone  kidding

DAILY:  NACi 2400MG , DHEAi sublingual , vit D3 , multi vits,./ Three times  a week: B12 injections (Hydroxycobalamin). Deer antler./  Once every few months methyl B12 Methyl injections

Started off this morning, just as bad as yesterday, had to take Salagen just to get some saliva!   As the day wore on, it started getting better, at this point as I type, I am back to how I was before the Flagyli, maybe tomorrow will be better?  We'll see.  Looks like a pretty strong herx, must be on to something like you said.

Hmmmm.   I think I'll take a few days off lurking around here to ponder this.

Update...

Today was not bad at all.   I always start off the day by popping a Salagen to get the saliva flowing for a limited time.  By the afternoon I noticed, the effects of the medication still seemed to work, or was it my own natural saliva?  The Salagen from past experience is good for a few hours max, so must be I am producing more?  Not jumping to any conclusions yet. Anyway, took another dose late afternoon, and was good to bedtime.

 

Starting off this day the same, popped one earlier and going out, will see what happens.

 

 

just wanted to post this, found it yesterday, some good treatment info on Sgjogren's, unfortunately the doctor is now retired, he was only a few hours away from me..

 Notice the mention of the 2 antibioticsi he said can "cure" sjogren's

This is interesting, too bad never said how it went finally.  I have sjogren's also, doing minocycline 100mg daily, have tried Flagyli, also Tinidazole,  Amoxicillan in various combos, some help, not much over just Mino.   I have read that Sjogrens is due to H Pylori, tough to get rid of, but there is a new drug being tested i Phase 3, with 90% cure reate.  Uses Amoxicillan, Rifabutin and Prilosec for 2 weeks.  Anyone ever try the Rifabutin, heard it is hard on the liver.  Hope to hear   some feedback on this drug, thanks.
