I wouldn't pulse it myself. I hope you're going to take it with Zith or Biaxin?

In my non-medical opinion it would be better this way than 4 days on and 3 days off.

Seems that is allowing the bugs a great opportunity.

I've heard of 3 days on and 4 days off. Dr. K recommends 3 weeks on 1 week off. The break is necessary to prevent the buildup of some enzyme in your gut which prevents the absorbtion of iron.

--------------------
Bite date ?
2/10 symptoms began
5/10 dx'd, after 3 months numerous test and doctors

IgM Igenex +/CDC +
+ 23/25, 30, 31, 34, 41, 83/93

Currently on:

Currently at around 80% +/- most days.

I just got put on 500 Mg. three times a day, with two dropperfuls of Crypto-Plus/day for Babesia.

The doc said ten days on and four days off.
