    Thank you, but I don’t have h. Plyori. I got gastritis from years of nsaids, prednisone and ra meds. I would like to know if doxy or any other antibiotic will make it worse

    I was negative for h. Plyori.

    I have taken the probiotic you’re talking about.

    I’m just wondering if it would be a good idea to take an antibiotic and which one. I don’t have access to a Dr who will do the iv therapy. Would doxy be bad to take with gastritis?

    Hey, how is the biaxin working? My dr said she would try that if I couldn’t tolerate the zithromax. I actually found a combination oil of olive leaf and oregano oil on Iherb. I’m gonna try that and see.

    That’s so good that it’s working. Did you have any side effects when first starting the zithromax? I was on doxy also but the joint pain it caused was too much. I’m on zithromax now and hopefully add in doxy later. Any supplements that help you?

    I thought Clarithomycin also caused heart problems. Would clarithromycin be a better option for severe RA? How much would I need to take?

    I have severe RA for 11 years. I’m currently taking kineret for it. My supplements are vitamin d, folate, b12, b6, magnesium, fish oil, zinc, and msm. I’ll try and add the signature line. I did test positive for 2 microplasma infections as well.
