Good evening all. I was on Biaxin for a month, but had a lot of trouble getting my prescription filled due to Biaxin shortage.

My doctor gave me Ceftin instead. I got about 80% better on Biaxin, but I am not sure if Ceftin is doing anything. I started the Ceftin about a week ago.

My lingering symptoms are severe foot spasms and pain. Before abx is was constant pain, now the foot pain is about half the day. Please share about Ceftin and/or foot pain. Thanks.

Biaxin was great for me. Don't remember much from Ceftin.

Back when I had foot and hand spasms, I was told it could be a mineral deficiency. So I started taking a mineral supplement. NO more spasms!!

Ceftin did nothing for me. Slight herx but it caused me to really backtrack.

Thanks for the responses.

What is the best mineral supplement for foot spasms?

Also is anyone else having trouble getting meds. because of drug shortages?

I am taking a low dose once a day and don't know if it's helping.

I've been on it for about 45 days.

I've tolerated it well, except I've been having some esophageal spasm chest pain I think may be related to it and all the other pills I am taking.

I'm taking NOW Full Spectrum Minerals Caps. I think you can get it at Swanson's.
