Thought this would be useful to share.
I was getting side effects from cipro and metronidazole stopped working. My gastro doctor then suggested a bunch of difficult options, such as specific carbohydrate diet and enimas, which are a ‘no’ from me. We’re also trying the probiotics, but I cant get VSL#3 in my country.
I went to my normal physician and asked his opinion. He suggested trying doxycycline as a safer drug. He put me on 50mg three times a day. It actually worked for me. The only catch is that it doesn’t seem to be putting it into remission, but I’m glad I have an alternate option to at least buy me time.
anyone else try doxycycline? Also, another one that seems to help is erithromicin. I only found that out because a pharmacist gave me the wrong medicine by accident. However, doxycycline helps me more.
