Sunshine and doxycycline

Copied from "Antibiotics"

Along with the seasonal change in the northern hemisphere to longer, sunnier days, I thought it might be wise to remind people taking doxycycline that they should avoid prolonged unprotected exposure to the sun. Although on vacation at the moment, David went in to the hospital today to check his mail and found a few people experiencing rashes and suchlike, so please remember your sunscreen and/or sunhats and long sleeves.

Has anyone here tried Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (breathing oxygen in a high pressure chamber)?

Does anyone know of any research into its efficacy?

I just started a course of treatment (1 dx for 3 weeks). The centre I'm going to makes no great claims, only that about 1 in 3 see an improvement in symptoms specifically improved bladder function (frequency and urgency) and improve fatigue levels.

Antibiotics post a risk for increased lung infections?

Posted on ThisIsMS' articles page is the following: "Recent interest in antibiotics as a potential treatment for MS have brought this class of therapeutics into our sphere of interest. A new study shows that acne sufferers, a group that often uses long-term antibiotics of the tetracycline family have an elevated risk for developing upper respiratory tract infections.

Established/Published Regimens

I'm interested in comparing a number of published regimens to see how they compare and contrast and then study the differences. Meaning, I'm looking for ones that are "publicly out there" and have had a good bit of public scrutiny. I've identified 3 so far:

The one in the Allen Bowling book
The best bet one the Direct-ms website
The one in the Judy Graham book

I'm not interested in ones that are developed by ...

Abx sojourn

Ok, here goes, it's time to start a treatment log.

I already keep one on CPn Help.org which is mostly for myself. This one I will keep for others.

First, a little about us. J is my husband diagnosed in May 2004. Prior to his exacerbation he had eye floaters (while jogging), numbness in his pinky side of his right hand, interminent color change (for years) and a swallowing issue. All of these were dismissed by ...

Jaded - progress on abx

I am so pleased to hear the progress many of you have made on the abx and other regimes that I thought I'd let you all know how I am doing.

I have been on the abx since August 2005, and took my first pulse of flagyl just after Christmas. My second pulse finished just over a week ago as I delayed it.

In between the two pulses I started to get an intermittent numbness ...
