If WC were here she would know this. I'm trying to get a sense of what "normal" vs "high" is for meds. 'high" seems to mean something different for everyone. My LLMD uses "high" doses but I wonder if they are really that high?

Amoxicillin
Zith/biaxin
Flagyl/Tinidamax
Mino/doxy
Mycobutin
Septra
Omnicef?

OK- what I've learned about Septra is from Dr S's babesia book, I think. He mentioned that Dr H of NY used to try high doses of Septra but decided that the side effects were unacceptable at 4 800/160 capsules per day.
I have tried to raise my dosage of Septra when I had my babesia relapse and didnt have other babesia meds handy, and I was fine with up to 4 per day, but I didn't sustain that dosage, and was not doing any blood tests at the time (a complete metabolic panel sounds like it would have been a good idea if I"d wanted to try this dosage longer-term). I did NOT consult with my LLMD on this at the time.

Mino - 200 mg standard, 400mg higher
Doxy - 400mg standard, 600mg higher
Biaxin - 1000mg standard, 2000mg higher
Zithro - 500-600mg standard, 1000-1200mg higher
flagyl/tinda - 1000mg standard, 2000mg higher
Rifampin - 600mg standard, 1200mg higher

Higher dosages, if taken daily, have much more risk of side effects in my opinion.

CD- yeah, 2 Septra DS a day is standard (that's the 160/800 dose). I'm not recommending that anyone try what I tried for a few days.
