I was thinking about trying a pulse, skipping abx every other day or every third day.

Anyone ever pulse like that?

I pulsed abx, taking 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It was very effective.

Awesome, thanks tulips! I hadn't heard of anyone doing it that way, but it seems like my body might be able to handle things better like that. I've been skipping every other day for the past few days as a trial.

How many abx were you on at that time tulips? Was it two different ones in the morning and evening?

Abx A in the morning and abx A in the evening M, W, F. Two weeks later abx B was added at noon M, W, F. I never took two different abx at the same time. I think it's too much for a person who's really weak. MYou have to work a cyst buster in too. I think that was taken at noon Tues and Thursday after about the 2nd week.

Now, however, I take herbs instead and usually take them at staggered times during the day - trying to get in two servings per day of each. I take NAC or Serrapeptase as a cyst buster.

Personally, I think when you are really sick, it might be best to take a lower dose of abx - upping the dose as you regain strength.
