I think there are some people who don't think they can do IV antibiotics cause they're too expensive or whatever. I tried to make it simple.

Thanks for making the video and letting us know about it. I'm glad you are seeing some progress. I've been unable to tolerate most standard/alternative treatments due to the side effects(neuro, cardiac, gi)and the iv antibiotics is something I haven't tried yet.

do have the ms diagnosis too, but am staying away from steroids. i'll e-mail you if I decide to try this down the road.

Hoping for continued success with this treatment for you. Very thoughtful of you to help others while your going thru so much yourself

take care

Hi droid, who gave you PICC line and who cares about it? I watched the video but did not understand very well (I am not English)

I would try the same, but nobody would give it to me here and with cannula one will not get too far.

Depending on the drug you are on, you can do it for less than $30 a day. Some IV drugs are more expensive than others.

Lala - I care for it. I can give you more info if you DM me.

Faithful - Yes, obviously. I made the vid for desperate people who are getting denied by ins. or don't have the hundreds or thousands a week it takes to be on the correct abx.

The correct meds for me are 4 different abx, all IV's. 17,000.00 a month. Not many can pull that off out of pocket. My insurance did for 4 months, then they said it was "fruitless" cause I wasn't better.

Basically, IV on a budget. I'd love to be on the correct meds, but rocephin keeps things at bay for now.

I did IV for $425 a month but I was on IV Clindamycin and I have a port. Clindy is less than Rocephin. No insurance either.

We did this for two people and spent under $1000 a month easy.

Inspiring droid! You may have opened up a path for some who can do this.

That's great Faithful, I haven't heard clinda working as a monotherapy but good to hear it worked for you.

Thanks valerie.
