Would really appreciate any input and experiences with tindamax. Will be pulsing it with azith. Always makes me nervous starting a new med, especially with the holidays coming. Thanks!

I was on 500mg 3X day for couple months..no problem but did herx at around the 5-7 day.

I've never pulsed my meds but I think you have to doing it w/Zith.

Wow, that seems like alot. Suppossed to really cause yeast problems if you're not real strict. May I ask if you felt better when taking it?

It did not seem to bother me very much or even cause a herx. If you have to pay for it out of pocket you can get it compounded as Tindazole and save lots of money.

I pulsed 150mg Tindi 2x day. I did fine on it for about a month, then started getting very emotional, crying spells over nothing on day 3 of the Tindi.

The crying would last a few days then ware off while I was on the Zith and as soon as I started the Tindi again the same crying spells on day 3 to day 5.

I was on it 3 months now taking a break from it due to the intensity for me.

I hope you do well on it.

I was afraid of tini until I took it and nothing happened so know everyone reacts differently and you may have zero problems.

used it for 6 months, no significant side effects other than a very slight metallic taste. My doc said that it also works on C-Diff; I didn't get C-diff despite being on abx for 8 months.

My first 2 treatments with Doxycycline, I got C-Diff and lost 20 lbs in a month.

I'm always nervous to start new meds too... [Frown]

I'm on Tinidmax and Erythromyacin. Not sure which one is doing it, but something is wreaking havoc

on my stomach. It also leaves a bitter taste in my
mouth ALL the time...yuch.

Not one of my favorites, but I am herxing on it.

Your pharmacist should have told you this but just in case....

-Take it with food

-Absolutely NO alcohol

I hope it works well for you!

thanks all,
My doc did say you could get depression and moodiness while on this. Everyone is different, so you never really know, but at least you can be aware of theses things. He also said it can cause neuropathy.

I am taking a half a pill right now once a day, ontop of IV's everyday and IM Bicillin every week.

It has increased my herxing I think due to all the other antibiotics pushing the bugs into the cyst form. My LLMD wants me up to 2 pills a day, it is going to take me quite a while to get to that dose though...
