Is there anyone that takes Tindamax and if so do you take it every day or pulse it? Thanks. It's a horrible drug for me.

I took flagyl (metronidazole) many years ago when I was treating lyme. I took it every day for 60 days. It operates the same as Tindamax--they both kill the cyst form of lyme. This is how I got rid of lyme over 10 years ago.

Many people take flagyl/Tindamax so many days and then take a break. Generally, the doctor wants you to take it or try to take it for 2 weeks straight. That is when it is the most effective. So, maybe you were told to work up to that.

Those who have a hard time with it have to slowly work up to the full 2 weeks.

I suggest you drink a lot of water with fresh lemons squeezed into it throughout the day every day to help detoxify yourself. Then the Tindamax may not be so difficult to take.

When I was treating lyme, I made lemon water my only drink. You can also drink Alka Seltzer Gold with lemon squeezed into it to help you feel better when the Tindamax makes you feel horrible.

People are really surprised at how well these things work. They flush out all of the dead germs that are the result of the Tindamax. Those dead germs are what make us feel awful.

My doctor told me to eat 4 lemons per day this way, but I never got up to 4 per day. I ate about 2 per day. He said that lemons are a natural cleanser and water flushes out the body. So, drink up and feel better.

Be careful if you get symptoms of nerve damage.

It's been a real important med for me, in combination with another antibiotic, such as omniceff. Gets into the brain. But it does cause headaches. My doc puts me on tindamax only 3 days a week. I wish it was more.

If offered take it. Keep fighting. Try to keep smiling.

I take it along with other stuff for Lyme, so it's hard to tell what makes me herx the worst. I take it daily.

I pulse coartem, and that has really nasty effects on me.

I know it's awful. Keep reaching out and keep fighting. If you ever need to unload, please feel free to PM me. Best wishes.

I took tinidazole and mino for about five or six months, no pulsing.

It didn't help, but to me research seemed to suggest it was a combo that might benefit some. That's why I embraced it. It just didn't work for me.

Based on the Lewis/Zhang/Embers studies, I'd give consideration to pulsing, if I were to try that tandem again any time soon. Finding the right schedule, though, would be important.

Thank you so much. I am on Rocephin and will try to take it as many days in the week as possible. Horrible drug but if it works it is worth it.

I'm on it and I feel a little skeletal/spine discomfort. I don't know if this is herxing or not. I have had these problems though as long as I can remember. I've only been on it a week though. My doc just tells me to take it every day so far. I was told if I start to herx and I can't handle it...stop until it subsides and then restart. I took flagyl for a month and I didn't herx at all.

What dosage is everyone taking?- I'm on 1000 mg. per day. Awful drug.
