I have been having some interesting GI problems for the last 2 years.
Nothing my GI had worked until
he put me on flagyl (250mg 3x for 5 days). I seemed to help significantly
after the third or fourth day.
The symptoms (loose stool, gas, bloating, belching, and vague fatigue)
returned after a 3 days. After this, He
tried amoxicillian and clairythomycin (Novamox and Baxin). This has no
effect even though the amounts
of antibiotic was stronger. What I am wondering is what does flagyl kill
that the other antibiotic do not
effect. I understand the flagyl is anti-protozal, but does it effect
Much thanks in advance...
P.S. Does the killing the parasite cause a minor die off effect. I noticed
that It felt worse before it got better
on the fourth day. No such effect on the other antibiotics.
