Antibiotics to leave your system

Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics to leave your system


Avatar f tn I do tend to get very stressed out and need to work on those problems a bit more, as I know stress can weaken your immune system quite a bit. I am getting very thin from not eating much so I do hope I can get an answer before Mayo Clinic but we will see. The tingling and 'cold' feeling in my stomach are driving me a little nuts. I stopped taking tons of probiotics today and feel better now. Even the yogurt with live cultures made me feel awful!
Avatar n tn I did more research, and began to understand what antibiotics do to your digestive system. I, having never taken supplements before, began to take probiotics, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, and even kava (for the calming effect). I only took a total of three "Zpac" and two weeks later I finally began to feel a bit more normal. It took awhile longer before I felt 100%, about 3-4 months, but the worst was definately passing after the first two weeks.
Avatar n tn Thank you so much for the info. I just put the list in my purse too. My doctor is aware of my situation, however he did prescribe me cypro not long ago.
Avatar n tn If my eye doesn't improve and no one is willing to try antibiotics I will find somewhere in lower 48 to go to. You know, the 2 sides of the issue as further antibiotics would not help, no such thing as chronic or post lyme or relapse, etc. versus those who believe it and try things. I get really discouraged knowing I am not well yet, my brain may be permanently damaged and I may not be able to get off meds for it, and fear that another ugly symptom, as eye, will not be kept in check.
Avatar n tn Let's see, as for your first question, I know that they want you to be off mtx at least 6 months before trying to conceive. So it does take a while to completely leave your system or at least get down to safe levels for the fetus. Speaking for myself only, I don't think mtx has damaged my immune system. Mtx keeps my immune system from getting out of control and attacking my joints. Without it, I'm sure I'd be having a lot more problems.
Avatar m tn Antibiotics can also cause anxiety in a very indirect way, but this would be caused by frequent doses. Because antibiotics kill the beneficial bacteria in our bodies as well as the bad ones, they can leave the body's immune system open to infections, especially yeast. Yeast infections can cause a host of symptoms if it gets bad enough, including anxiety and fatigue.
Avatar m tn Since we suffer from inflammation in the central nervous system, it is causing our brains and spinal cord to over react to the slightest change. I have found relief by lying down and resting as much as possible and staying hydrated. This is a very serious condition though and I hope you find relief. As for disability, it really stinks for the government not to back you up. You have to have a government justified debilitating condition to get disability.
Avatar m tn Peridontal infection can go straight to your heart. This is why the meds prior to cleaning your teeth. IN my opinion you are playing a dangerous game by not taking the antibiotic for your infection. Look it up--- gum infections and the heart.
Avatar n tn What are the long-term effects of taking heavy doses of antibiotics? Will I become more susceptible to weird bacterial infections? I hate the acne, but it doesn't seem worth risking my health in toto simply for "cosmetic reasons." By the way, I am also taking Ortho TriCyclen, which I started taking for birth control, not acne. My doctor has told me to continue taking it. I had some very mild acne as a teenager--usually just a pimple or two at a time--but nothing like this.
262527 tn?1285385259 Doesn't he have hospital privileges or something? Whatever would cause him to downgrade your treatment to a level that may very well not reach your brain???? In treating brain abcesses we even use Flagyl IV! If he told you this new regime would do as good a job.......then he is either stupid or he lied. Rob, from everything I read, you need IV antibiotics and lots of them! You have got to find someone else to get another opinion from! I am done here. I have to be able to sleep at night.
643455 tn?1223406587 - Do I start the next day after my antibiotics are gone or do I need to wait for some of the antibiotics to leave my system before begining the yeast infection treatment and wait a day or two or three?? Please someone help so I know when to start and when not to!
1211076 tn?1303523040 Just a point...many (if not most) vaccinations do not have any "live" agent in them. I'm sorry but to say, "build up your weak immune system first" is kind of just a pie in the sky fantasy for some people...such as those who are HIV+ or those with cancer, people undergoing chemo, etc. In a perfect world yes, we would all be able to just eat well, live right and pump up our immune systems...but very few of us live in that perfect world.
Avatar n tn Think about it your more susceptible to infections you can no longer fight off or suppress due to the reduction of your much needed immune system. What ever you were exposed to and your body may have been fighting off fine, you may now expose your self to and find your self with strep, thrush, EBV, aids! I bet long term donors are high risk for cancer our suppressor cells keeping that at bay in healthy individuals.
Avatar f tn You should seek consultation with a Urologist or a Nephrologist to determine with certainty the organism(s) causing recurrent infection and determine if you might have any anatomical abnormalities in your urinary tract that could predispose you to infection. As to the respiratory infection, there is a strong possibility that it is related to the gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). You mentioned having had endoscopy and being treated for H. Pylori.

4451049 tn?1387157037 Just thinking ahead. If I had to go to IV antibiotics, how does all this work? I know that I would need to travel a distance to get the PICC inserted. Do they do the first infusion at that time? I would need to be capable of driving myself home is why I ask. It wouldn't be so powerful to initiate some sort of massive herx, would it? I wouldn't be to sick to drive home would I? And I am assuming that, from there forward I would do my own infusions - right?
Avatar m tn while antibiotics kill bad bacteria you also have good bacteria in your immune system in your gut and the antibiotics kill those also; so to counter this and to boost the immune system= Pro-biotics can be bought at vitamin store and the more antibiotics u take the more pro-biotics u need MUST SEPARATE TIME OF DAY BY 3 HR otherwise they just cancel each other out.
Avatar f tn Usually probiotics such as culturelle or align with these meds can help your gi system get back to normal. Red stools may indicate bleeding in your GI tract so get to a doc or ER today so they can rule this out. Do not take immodium or drugs to stop the Diarrheah until you know what is wrong. If you take medicines to slow you down with Cdiff or infections it can hurt you. Try to keep up your fluid so you do not get dehydrated . Take care and hope this gets resolved soon.
2107676 tn?1388977459 Greeting Pat I just wanted to add my support I'm glad that you have not given up on your desire to get clean.. On our journey we find detours but the path is always their when we look up ready to lead us on.. I'm glad our paths run along each other occasionally as we walk our winding path to Freedom.
1507842 tn?1298432222 Also, Lyme has an unusually slow reproductive cycle, and it is at the time bacteria are reproducing that they are most vulnerable to antibiotics. Two weeks of antibiotics cover many many generations of regular bacteria and keeps hammering them into oblivion. Two weeks is a looong time for most bacteria to be hit with antibiotics, but Lyme (like tuberculosis in this way) requires at least several months of treatment (tuberculosis is commonly treated for 18 months).
Avatar f tn For those who sought or seek and/or received or receive medical treatment for HCV in the US, and for caregivers and loved-ones of HCV patients, I hope you will take a moment to tell us about your experience. I would like to hear about your interactions with any of the following; private insurers, VA, state or federal healthcare programs, pharmaceutical company programs, drug trials, or clinics.
Avatar f tn So, you need to do a few things to keep your digestion regular. Drink plenty of water every day, eat plenty of whole grains and vegies, and exercise daily. For example, you should eat 100 percent whole wheat bread every day. Fourthly, if your smell does not come from gas, but you just smell all the time, I have to assume you keep up good hygiene, which includes keeping your clothes and body clean, perhaps using underarm deodorant, and brushing your teeth every day.
Avatar f tn For those that don't care about that and prefer to treat Lyme disease with non-science based methods--- that's your perogative and you need not read futher. Information is given at many Lyme forums (where public posting of LLMDs names is discouraged) to contact ILADS and they will send you the names of 3 ILADS trained health care professionals. So, still sounds good, right?
Avatar f tn If you think the cytomel is causing your headache, all you have to do is stop taking it.... 5 mcg is such a small amount that you probably won't even notice it, unless you really need it to keep you from going hypo... I've been on cytomel/generic T3 med for about 3 yrs and never had a headache from it. What are your latest thyroid hormone test results? You should be getting tested regularly for TSH, Free T3 (FT3) and Free T4 (FT4).......
202436 tn?1326477933 Could be hormonal as you said since you just stopped BFing. Your body may be trying to get back to normal for your cycles to start back if they haven't already. With my last baby, Mary, when my cycles started back up, my cramps were killer. Prescription IBProfin used to do the trick but it wasn't anymore. Along with the cramps, I also get the premenstral migraines. I went and saw my OB and he prescribes Tylenol 3.
Avatar m tn Unlike most bacteria, however, Lyme bacteria can persist longer than the immune system is accustomed to, so when your immune system packs up and goes home and assumes that its work is over (as it would normally be with any other bacterial infection), it may well not really be over, because the Lyme infection can and often does persist.
Avatar f tn I emphasize powder because you will mix your own slury to smear on your breast. Some like it thicker, like modeling clay, others prefer slury that dries on the breast. Scroll down and check out the references to the clay. I also found that it helped draw out the puss from the wound, which was really nice. You will want to shower and rince the area after, so I don't worry too much about infection.

Avatar dr m tn If you’re susceptible to sleep-breathing problems at all (most modern humans are to some degree), any degree of inflammation in the throat will cause further swelling, starting up a vicious cycle that brings up more stomach juices into the throat, which causes more obstructed breathing and stomach juice reflux. It’s important to realize that whatever comes up from your stomach includes not only acid, but also bile, digestive enzymes, and bacteria.
