Just wondering if there are folks here that have gotten off antibiotics and how did they know they were ready?

I would say I am 95% well and am thinking the remaining twitching is from yeast. Right now yeast seems to be a problem after being on abx over three years. Other symptoms of which I had many have gone.

I will be starting chinese medicine herbs through my acupuncturist this December so am thinking this will help me transition from abx.

Any thoughts on this? thanks

CONGRATULATIONS!

I went through the flagyl challenge and when I passed that, I was just got off of the abx. That was 10 years ago!

Haha! Thanks for the laugh you guys!

Autocorrect gets me all the time.

One time I was texting to a coworker and was talking about a hard job I had to do.

Some how it came out ha*d job I had to do.

Hahaha! Embarassing!

I stopped abx when I had to go back to work full time in May.

I was good, felt good, until last week.

Now have had an 8 day migraine.

I was on hardcore abx for a year before throwing in the towel.

Yesterday started abx up again.

So that is a great question, I honestly do not know the answer.

Hi Peony! I was on antibiotics for 4 and 1/2 years. I felt about 80 percent better when I went off antibiotics. I was really nervous about stopping but at the same time I felt ready to try it. I've been off antibiotics for 2 years and I am doing pretty good. Glad I'm off and able to live life again.

It's so worth getting off. I think it's the only way to know if you are well. And you can always start treatment again if necessary.

Good luck! I hope everything goes good for you.
