Has anyone tried these for more than 1 week? It sounds like these are the best drugs for Bartonella? Any suggestions?

Yeah, I did quite a few pulsed gentimcin dosage.

Its def the best I have tried...and more tolatable then the rifimpin, I couldnt handle that drug.

MY llmd said to pulse it in 5 day stints...but that was so we could forgo doing bloodwork. I did find I had to take quite a bit...like around 250mg in single daily dose to really do killing.

It however would come RIGHT back in like 3 days...returning to my former infection load...pretty sad....geez.

I don't think the docs are using this too much but I have heard of some folks getting remarkable results on 2-8 weeks of gentamicin.

Gentamycin can be a very dangerous drug with permanent side effects you wouldn't want.
