I have been on Doxy 400 mg per day and am getting ready to begin the Clindamycin/Quinine protocol alternating every 10 days with Amox.

Do you have to avoid dairy with this the same as the Doxy? I could not find anything in the handouts with the prescriptions or on a drug interatction cross-ref that I have.

Also, I had some pretty bad nausea and stomach pain with the Doxy at times, and my reflux problems came back. How does the Clindamycin compare in this area?

Thanks,
Gail

While I don't believe dairy interfers with those drugs, I would just give my pharmacy a call...that would probably be an easy question that could be answered right over the phone, a yes or no.

Answering questions like yours is something that your pharmacy does all the time and even expects it.

I did not avoid dairy while on those drugs.

Thanks for your help Rosemary.

It will sure make it easier to get my protein at breakfast, as I was used to eating cottage cheese and fruit before doxy. I am really getting tired of eggs!

Did the clindamycin upset your stomach? I don't tolerate nausea too well.

I also just started Clindamycin and Quinine protocol.

I see you too are an Okie suffering with Lyme disease. I would love to hear from you about your illness and where you were infected. I am working with some others here to get the CDC to report the correct statistics for lyme cases here - at present OK reports none.

Let me know how you do on the medication. Do you perhaps see Dr. C in MO?

Would love to hear from you - [email protected]
