Reply to "entyvio or stay on rotating antibiotics?"

My choice is to stay on the antibiotics for as long as they work, and hold biologics in reserve for if/when antibiotics fail me. Your rotation schedule will help reduce the development of any resistant bugs. I’ve had a couple of sinus infections over the years, and they’ve been treated with a completely different antibiotic with good results. It’s possible that your ENT is mixing together his concern about you with a public health concern about antibiotic resistant organisms. There’s a decent chance he’s never actually had a patient on continuous antibiotics before, and I wonder if his “experience” could be more of an expression of that public health concern. Perhaps he can point you to a real study that showed a problem?I’ve never seen one.

What does your gastroenterologist think?
