The Dangers of Long-term Antibiotic Use

I finished antibioticsi in 2007, after taking them for four years. Last weekend I started taking roxithromycin again, a short course for an infected forefinger which had become so swollen that it was interfering with my work. Funnily enough, the treatment worked and my right forefinger is now as slim as my left and the wound caused by a splinter has healed. and is busy fitting up my new state of the art printer. You ...

Does CAP work for the reason you think it does?

I hate to poo-poo any of our strategies to beat MS but having been on CAP and felt improvements along with a lot of suffering and some new neurological symptoms, I feel it only right I share this with CAP'ers and those looking into CAP.

HPA axis dysregulation and resulting excess cortisol and aldosterone are known to be a part of MS. Doxycycline and minocycline suppress cortisol and aldosterone release. I think the reason CAP ...

"Germs Are Us" - important antibiotic info for everyone

Very important reading for those who take antibiotics for any reason, including trying to combat "MS." It's a long read, but I encourage everyone to finish the article.

Nigel, I'm thinking of you and your antibiotic regimen for your Cpn infection - could part of the reason for the problems you've been having during the "die-off" period be partly caused by the loss of good bacteria?

Antibiotics for Treating MS in Canada

I have read Dr.David Wheldon's recommendations for treating Chlamydia Pneumoniae, often present in MS patients. I have downloaded the .pdf from his site, which inludes a literature review and sample dosing schedule. Now comes the hard part. I have to find a doctor who will prescribe these antibiotics. I am quite sure that my neurologist will laugh me out of the room, and my GP will probably not want to prescribe a bunch of antibiotics ...

generic vs brand name drugs

Does anyone have feedback on the quality of the various generic forms of Azithromycin, Doxycycline, and Metronidazole.
I am really skeptical of drugs made in India.
The generic drugs are much cheaper, so I would like to go that route if possible, but not if safety and quality are in question.
Also, can anyone recommed an online source that does not require a prescription.
Thanks

Chlamydia pneumoniae- Natural antibiotic= Mentha Arvensis?

I just came accross this research article published Nov. 2011:
http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/jf2032473

It says that Mentha Arvensis (Menthol) significantly reduced Chlamydia pneumoniae bacterial load in mice. I guess this would be a natural alternative to synthetic antibiotics, no? (except that it would have no negative side effect, of course)

New here with questions - Abx

Hi - I am very glad to have found this forum.
I don't have MS, but it appears I have Cpn.
I have been very sick for years.
I have tested positive for Lyme (culture test), Bartonella, MycoPn and Cpn. I also have HypoG/CVID for which I do IVIG infusions of Gammaglobulin.

My Cpn test was done a week after an infusion so I hope the donated antibodies did not skew the results. I rather ...
