Can't get the search to working.

To make a long story short, I went back to my Dr. C. and he does have me on multiple antibiotics.

One of the first things that I have to combine is clindamycin and quinine.

Seems like I have read on here on somewhere that this is not a good thing to do.

I can't remember why and was hoping someone here would know something about where I read this.

I looked through Burrasano's E-book and can't find it there.

Please advise as I am going to be filling the prescriptions to take next week.

I took it for babesia. You must be careful not to take too much quinine. If your ears ring badly, then lower your dosage.

(ask the DR)

Quinine can also affect the heart. Clindamycin can cause C-diff, so make sure to take s.boulardii and quality probiotics.

I am supposed to take it for 20 days and then switch with something else and bounce back and forth. Not sure for how long.

The way he states it is that you stop and change when you are no longer getting better or when you have hit a plateau.

He used to do a 10 day rotation. You keep doing whatever he said until you no longer herx and/or feel better.

lol. That sure sounds like a familiar protocol. Some things don't change.
Posted by carolann2013 (Member # 39964) on :
SeekHelp, do you see Dr. C also?
Posted by carolann2013 (Member # 39964) on :
It is ten days rotation Lymetoo. I was mistaken.

Carolann, I did a long time ago. Stopped going there though.
