Hi all. Was wondering what some of your experiences are related to long-term antibiotics - particularly whether you do a "short course"? "long course"? or steady daily sustained course?
I was on daily sustained for years/months stretch but new GI is suggesting maybe better to see if I can do a course and then go off for a while.
I typically see instant improvement (same day) after starting antibiotic. Does anyone do just a day or two? or do 3-5 day course? or do most people do full 1 or 2 week course? or just stay on indefinitely?
Curious about experiences of others ?
Thanks for input ! ... -Mike
