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.

Here we go , I started doxy on Sat. working up to 200 mgs by yesterday as pharmacy wanted me to work up slowly due to questionable allergy problems to tetracycline as a child.

So far so good, I felt like I was coming down with cold first day and it went away.

I meet with my doctor next week to discuss addition of zithromax, I wrote her a 3 page letter explaining I need ...

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 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 ...

I was just curious if anyone would kindly post the following information:

MS Stage (RR, SP, PP, B) =

Regimen =

Length of Time on Regimen =

EDSS before Regimen =

EDSS after Regimen =

I want to see if anything is really working. There is so much content on this site it would take a very long time to read all of it.

Hello All - Where Do I Start?

I am a 45 year old guy diagnosed with MS in 1997. I started Avonex in 1997 and have been taking it nonstop ever since. I am fortunate that I have very limited disability (hands, right leg) due to flareups of the MS in 1996-2000. I have had clear and clearer MRIs since the Novantrone "put the fire out" on MS for now. Still looking over my shoulder as I run this race though. Other ...
