Intermittant Protocol

Intermittant Thereapy~~~ There recently have been quite a few who have gone to intermittant therapy (hurray!).  I know in recent discussions comments are made "to refer back to their individual posts" to see what that consists of.  It is difficult sometimes to query this site for such specific information re each member.  

Effect of Hydrocortisone Succinate on Growth of Chlamydia pneumoniae In Vitro


Reaction to Azithromycin

As well as taking Doxycycline twice a day, everyday, I now take Azithromycin 3 times a week on a Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. I started taking Azithromycin 3 weeks ago and have found that each Thursday I feel really bad and my symptoms seem to be a lot worse. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?



Completed pulse #18 tonight. 

My wife is listening to a recording of "Jerusalem" on Youtube.  The music makes typing this whole thing sound more auspicious than it is.

Chronicles of a Rifampinaut: 29 and 30 down, 31 coming

It's been  while since I've posted or really spent much time here.  I don't know why exactly, just have had other things occupying my mind and time.  Even so, I thought I would post how things have gone these last 2 or 3 months, or some short blurb about it.

Both pulse 29 and 30 went better then earlier pulses.  I suspect the reasons are because I started using a gel capi to enclose the dose of Flagyli and I've been becoming aclimated to the greater dosage amount then I had been last summer.  And of course, each pulse knocks the CB load down more so there's always that.

Happy 1st AZITHROVERSARY to me!

Ever go to the doctor and feeling like total crap? Frown I mean, you want to feel good when you go to the doctor, right?  You gotta feel real good if you can get teleported from Northern Virginia to Nashville, Tennessee in the passenger seat of the starship minivan and not remember anything, including driving further south to see a blizzard!  Apparently I had the “We’re going to miss both NFL championship games flu”. 

First CAP anniversar, progress report and thoughts...

It's hard to believe but I am on 13th month of CAPi treatment. I started on January 02, 2008, twicked my protocol a little for a couple of months. Since March'08 I settled on Doxyi 200 mg/day and Rifampin 600 mg/day. In Nov'08 Bactrim was added twice a day. 2 weeks ago I switched from Doxy to Minocycline. So, right now I am on Mino + Rif + Bactrim.

CAP, step two: adding Azithromycin

I've been on Doxicycline for two weeks now, and I feel up to take another step in CAPi treatment. 

Azithromycin (according to the instructions that come with the drug) has to be taken for three consecutive days in a week: however, as stated on, Azithromycin should be taken (at 250 mg dose) each other day (Mon./Wed./Fri.) over the course of the week.

I feel the knowledge regarding Cpn treatment expressed on being much more thoughtful , but I'd like to hear any thought or suggestion about this, before getting on Azithromycin, next week.


Drying out

I must be drying out from the "intoxication" of the bacterial detritus because I can't come up with a snappy subject line any longer.  I guess this forum may have just lost a promising contender for the Bulwer-Lytton contest. 

Anyway, I just downed the metronidazolei to mark the completion of pulse #17.






I am in a quandry.  I am concerned I may be developing a resistance to doxyi and/or azith, is that possible? Or could it just be time for me to mix it up?

 I am again very ill with severe bronchitis and/or cpni pneumoniae symptoms.  I am almost physically at the point I was in March of 2007 when I was first diagnosed (bed ridden, chest pain, deep bronchial coughing, very weak)  This is about the 3rd episode over the last 6 months (2nd within the past 2 months!)

In all honesty my improvements over the past year haven't been significant, other than a reduction in brain fog and a reduction in my FM symptoms.  As each month passes I keep adding to the mix..... I KNOW that is part of this process -- it just becomes more obvious how infected I must be.

too much maybe

Hello again,

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. Thought I would post this morning with another one of my perdicaments.  I started taking 500mg of Ziithromax instead of 250 mg M/W/F about 2 months ago. Ive seen a big differents and seem to be recovering faster but I dont know if this is too much or not. about 2 weeks ago I started having some chest pains as a new symptom but I dont know if its related. Im afraid to go back to 250 becuase ive been on 500 for so long.  Any edvise would help thanks

Azithromycin insurance question

Went to my doc today and had no trouble getting him to switch me from cipro to azithromycin.  I also asked for Flagyli and he readily agreed!  Wow!  The cipro was causing big sleep problems too.  It's in the same class as Levaquin and I used to have insomnia whenever my ent would give me Levaquin.  The only thing is, my insurance will only pay for 8 pills at a time.  It's just $5 each time which means $20 a month but seems silly to have to get it refilled every week.  Has anyone else had this problem?  I will call my insurance company tomorrow and check with them about it.  He also told me to take the flagyl 3 days on, 2 days off for a while.  It's 500mg twice a day.  He said I will feel awful for a while but a lot better by February.  I'm going to wait until after Christmas to

Kissing Your Sister

During 2008 I did so many pulses while I was traveling that doing the last one at home seemed to be missing something.

Anyway, pulse #16 completed.

Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Joyous New Year.


Does PrimaCare count as an Emergency Room?

Ended up at Primacare the other night.  I was lifting my wife's uncle's Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC - bet most here don't recall what that was) footlocker when the handle broke and it landed on my left foot.  The bruising and swelling looked a lot like a similar break a few years ago so I hobbled into Primacare; a local "doc in a box" that I knew from past experience had an x-ray machine.  Turns out that I had not broken the foot.

The worst part of it is that I can't blame any of this on the reaction to the last pulse since the aftermath has been completely unremarkable.

Fifteen down - and how many to go?

Fifteenth pulse completed today. 

Overall, had the same experience as the last few pulses of getting "supercharged" after starting the flagyli.  Also, had very severe shortness of breath a couple of times reminiscent of my experience in Chicago.  If I had not already had the experience of making a trip to the Emergency Room in Chicago last year, I would have probably ended up going to check out what the E.R. looked like a Houston's Memorial Herrman hospital.  I've heard its a good one.  Anyway, the dyspnea passed and I'm now just waiting for the endotoxinsi to hit.

I also have to remember to keep it a secret from my son that flagyl turns the color of urine orange since that's his favorite color.
