Dr. F is taking me off the Rifampin, and I'm trying Factive instead. If this doesn't work, I'm not sure what we'll do, but I'll cross that bridge if and when I come to it.
So, here's how my antibiotic regimen looks now:
Mon./Wed./Fri: 300 mg Azithromycin
7 days of Factive (320 mg) followed by 7 days off
My energy is very low, and my mood is crummy: it's hard not to get sucked into self-pity when I'm this incapacitated. All I know is that we have to get this sorted out before Passover, because I can't cook for a seder if I'm in this condition. More later when I can type with less pain.
