What was the reason you chose to reduce your dosage?
In hindsight, I wish I never changed the dosage; but I thought my dosage was too high and I thought that by actually reducing it may improve my RA.
Also, I remember a Rheumatologist suggesting that I could try reducing the dosage, (although he was not an advocate of AP).
Any idea how long it will take after I increase the dosage back to 200mg daily, that I can hope to see improvement.March 4, 2015 at 11:18 pm #366973
My right knee at the moment is not too bad, it has moments however, when it flares. There has been significant improvemnt since i started AB.
The problem i find is that whilst my rheumatologist has prescibed minocycline, he is not experienced in AB protocol.
I have read on various posts that some patients take 100mg twice a day on Monday Wednesday Friday, so i have been trying this for the last week or so.
Do you take AB and how is working for you.January 16, 2015 at 11:10 am #374423
Very interesting. I didn’t know they can prescribe it even before a dental procedure.

I have found this information about horsetail tea on internet. It says that it contains aluminium…?
“When made into horsetail tea, it contains high amount of different minerals, including manganese, potassium, aluminum, and flavonoids”.

What if it is just too many toxins suddenly in the body not herxing? Have you been doing any detox? I don’t know much yet, but maybe it’s the same?

Thank you Maz. Yes, I will show it to my doc even risking my friendship with him. I didn’t watch that program in November.
I hope they will do more tests and change some rules here soon /Medicare/

Wow! Finally they have admitted it. I have copied and pasted to my GP who doesn’t believe it. Thank you Maz.

I am interested if you have always been on the same dose of Mino and when your blue spots started to appear. Thank you and best wishes.

Maybe you could try to measure your BP on a wrist /thinner, less flesh/
There is no signature below your messages. Please let me know what medication and a dose you had in IV?

Do you take your blood pressure on your arm or wrist?

Taking both an NSAID and an herbal anti-inflammatory is probably not a good idea —
How do you know which herbal medications cannot be taken with NSAIDs? I take Naprosen and would like to give a try to Rumalaya. It contains boswellia serrate. Please see the description below.

I’m also hoping that Onset offers another coupon for 2015. I’m not convinced that the coupon offered at helprx.com will actually provide a 75% discount, since their wording is “save up to 75%”…
I haven’t discovered how these drug coupon sites operate and am a bit skeptical. The following site also offers coupons…I used their price look-up. https://medicationdiscountcard.com/prescription-price-lookup for 100mg capsule, quantity 30. The price look up shows a retail price of $426, and a savings of $96. That is only a 23% savings. The cost will go up from $25 to $326, according to this look-up.
I’m going to ask the pharmacist to price my cost if I use helprx coupon and will post an update.
