Topic: When should I start IV abx??

I've been taking Zith 500mg for 2 weeks and Doxy 400mg for about three weeks. I've been feeling worse...should I stick it out with these for another week? two weeks? until I'm feeling better? Or should I ask my doc to start me on IV - something strong like Rifampin,Mepron, Flagyll, Rocephin, Mepron, Biaxin??
And are these ones all IV?

Honestly, you havn't given it enough time. If you can get well by taking oral medication, you are much better. I haven't had IV and I've been on Orals for almost 17 months. Doc says IV is last resort. Expensive, Painful and intrusive into your life. -------------------- 26 months of treatment. And counting.......
