My LLMD prescribed me Gentamycin i.m. 40mg/d for Bart hens.
Anyone experienced with this?
I'm aware of the possible ototoxicity, but LLMD says: No danger with this low dosage.

After my horrible floxing-experience with Levofloxacin in January I'm really afraid of possibly dangerous drugs.

Glad, that so far I can tolarate at least Doxy, which was not possible within the first 6 months after it happended.

I feel sooo insecure! [Frown]

That dose is for babys it will not harm or do any good to you except if the doc is thinking to take that in combination with other stuff and for a long time.If you are more than 70Kg dose for gentamycin should be at least 120mg a day and if you are only on that medication up to 240 mg a day. Up to one monthore two on 40 mg aday you will be fine most of the people are.

I took it for about one month. 4 vials a day, can't remember what the mg was on each vial.

Don't know what strain of bart I ha but did get lasting improvement from it. No ear damage at all.

Gent can cause ear trouble over time, cumulatively(sp?). So, if you take it once in your life, you may not be able to take it later on. It accumulates in the ear and stays there forever. Make sense?

@Maradona, thanks, that calms me down.

@blinkie, glad to hear, that Genta helped!
Google told me, Genta is good for Bart. quintana and that it can help quickly for that.
