Can you please advise if you take them everyday, or pulse? And what's the dosage, please?


Thanks so so much!


I'll get my PICC line pulled this afternoon (current doctor gave up on me)...

It's 3 doses Mepron/day with 600-1,200 mg Zithromax plus Artemesia for 4-9 months.

I took 2 tsp. twice daily of Mepron. I took Biaxin with it, so I don't know the dosage of Zith.

I also took Artemisia three times daily.

I take 5ml (1 teaspoon) twice a day Mepron. 250 mg zith twice a day. artimisin 3x a day. Have been doing this for almost 4 months, likely continue for another 4 months. Also take Ceftin every day.

And that is about as much as my GI track can handle!!!

I know others take higher doses, but I just can't hold it down. Also, the Mepron shoots my liver enzymes up, so I have to keep the dose lower. Make sure they check for that with the Mepron.

My red blood cells are looking normal again and no more night sweats, so we know the dosage is working.

Please forgive me if I am in error,

But I am pretty sure I read that any more than 750mg twice dailey of mepron

Is all your body can use. Any extra is just wasted out.

I pulse mepron with three weeks on and one week off.

I stay on the biaxin the whole time.

Hugs,

Geneal

In my experance pulsing any Babs meds
is a mistake --

Babs Quickly can get resistant -

each and every time I had to stop taking
babs meds I relapsed --
and lost Much progress each time I had
to stop --

I had to stop 4 times because of
supply problems - Ouch --
Dont let this happen to you -

I feel sure that If the First Time
I was being treated with mepron

If I had been able to take mepron Contentiously
for 12 months my babs would
have been Zapped -
