"Getting a Handle"

Caffeine has played a big role in my life for the last eight months or so, with no end in sight. However, there are small reprieves that show themselves now and then. As a matter of fact, I am beginning a "now", now, and it is good. Caffeine is easier than flagyli, but not a carefree walk in the park. Since I began with flagyl and only used caffeine after nearly five years, I can't say for sure that caffeine would have been easier then. It has its own problems - but problems associated with this protocol, at least for me, would never compare to what life - or the lack thereof - would be like without it. Heartfelt and eternal thanks to all who have had a part in bringing it to the world.

Flagyl/Metronidazole v/s Tindamax/Tinidazole - Info Hub

Kim's just starting her December 2009 pulse and she's "Out the Gate Early".  Meaning, Flagyl "fun" started up on day-1 of the pulse.  I've read that folks on Tinii have less of this and I came here today to think about it.  First here's a couple links to RxList:

Flagyl (Metronidazole)< and Tindamax (Tinidazole)<

I thought it was interesting that both of them had peripheral neuropathy listed as side effects.

Being a good cpnhelp'er I did a search and here are links I found:

Praying to the Porcelain God - Not

As I get ready to finish up a maintenance pulse, I just wanted to report in on something. 

Because of the chemical similarities between Flagyl and Antabuse (a drug that is used to treat alcoholism), we warn people that Flagyl could cause the same reaction so they shouldn't drink during a Flagyl pulse. 

During my entire time on the CAPi, I scrupulously avoided alcohol because I really hate to vomit.  But, after I quit having reactions to the pulses and switched to maintenance treatment, I started drinking again.  During one of my maintenance pulses, I wasn't even thinking about the possible Antabuse reaction and had a drink....

Azoles Antimicrobials

Azoles Antimicrobials. Fasigyn   (Tinidazole),  some other brand names, Tindamax (Tinidazole)Other azoles include Flagyl (metonidazole) and others.

Empty Capsules Triple "000" size V-caps or Gelatin Caps can be useful.

Nausea, stomach pain and vomiting from gastric irritation while taking Doxyi, Clarithromycin or metronidazolei(Flagyl) is a topic that has come up over and over again here.  

Empty Capsules Triple "000" size V-caps or Gelatin Caps was suggested several years ago for people who had trouble tacking Flagyl.    I picked up a bag at my local natural foods store.  Some people purchase Vit-C in bulk and fill their own capsules, they are used for other herbs as well.

1 year and 9 months on CAP.

I didn't even notice how time went by. It's been 1 year and 9 months since I started CAPi. When I started, I thought I'd be on it only for a year. Then I hoped to stop at 2 years mark but now I see that I may need a bit more time b/c I still have a few unresolved symptoms.

I am guilty though for taking about 3-4 weeks break from treatment this summer. It happened sponteneously. I ran out of meds, didn't refill on time, we needed to go away for vacation, oh well, many excuses. The truth is that I am burnt out.  I put myself back on track but I can't wait when the treatment will be over. 

9/11 equals 20? Pulse 20 that is . . . .

Today is a day of remembrance for all of our fallen hero’s for this we bow our heads to pray.


As I started typing it hit me that I’m talking about my 20th pulse. WOW!

Metrolex or Flagyl

I switched brands of metronidazole from Flagyl to Metrolex. I dont know if this was good or not. But Metrolex is a lot cheaper. Anybody have any experience with this. I still have the same side effects with the Metrolex so I guess thats good

Another Flagyl pulse completed

Since I was unable to get tinidazole in time for my next pulse and had 11 Flagyli tablets left, I decided to go ahead with the Flagyl again but to reduce the dosage to two tablets per day rather than three.  I have to say that things went relatively well.  While I still had all the normal reactions to taking the Flagyl, beginning with the very first pill, the reactions were strong yet more tolerable at the two-per-day dose.  Maybe I just am not ready for the full dosage yet. 

Trying to switch to Tini, but ...

Well, I finally completed another full Flagyli pulse on July 10, and I'm ready to pulse again in two days.  The last Flagyl pulse was very difficult on my digestive system no matter what I tried to do to help.  I had lots of pain, bloating, gas, all that fun stuff.  It also didn't go away very quickly after I finished the pulse, although I'm pretty much back to normal now.  I used charcoal, extra probiotics, glucose, Emergen-C with no relief. 

Vertigo and Vergeance

One of us asked me what I could do now that I am a "1" instead of a "2", or as I used to be, a "6.7". The answer would be so long that it would fill a good-sized book. Let me start with the fact that I can swat the pesky fly (just did) that has been flitting around (and no longer is). I could follow that with some of the everyday other pesky things like sinusitis, inflamed gums, varied skin problems, dry skin, mental fog, and, most monumental of all, my walking. Not only those, but I can take a deep breath without coughing. Most "normal" people take that for granted, but I was not able to do that for years and years. And I had a "catch in my chest" which prevented me from breathing much at all when it was happening.

Flagyl metal sensitivities?

I was wondering if anyone has metal sensitivities while doing flagyl pulses.

Severe spacifity -- baclofen pump

I stopped flagyl and am switching to tinii because of severe tooth staining (my neuroi confirmed that staining is a known side effect of flagyl); I will start 1st tini pulse today.  I am about 2 weeks late with this pulse because of the change over.  When I saw my neuro to get the tini perscription, he was concerned about my increasing spacifity and gave me a package on the baclofen pump to consider.  This pump is a serious consideration; it requires a test and then, if the results are positive, the operation for implantation.  Yesterday afternoon my spacifity got so much worse.  It was scarry -- just getting into bed, getting my legs on the bed, getting up to pee at 1 , 3, & 5 AM.   I have never experienced such spacifity.  My condition has worsened this last year, but ye

Flagyl cauing depression?

I finished my 5th pulse 3 weeks ago.  ! 500mg 2xday for 5 days.  I started feeling horrible about day 3 but pushed myself to 5 days.  I am just now feeling a little better.  I seemed to get in a horrible depression during and after the pulse.  Can flagyl cause depression?  I have been so down that all I do is lay around.  Don't care about doing anything or going anywhere.  I'm a little better now.  I think it threw me for a loop?
