A few days before beginning my treatment I discovered that my ASO or streptococcus levels were high above the reference range. After lots of research I decided to take 250 mg of ampicillin (penicillin) in the evenings, and 600 mg of oral clindy in the mornings, to fight this bacterial strain before I begin minocycline. I am not sure exactly how long I should follow this protocol, but I’m guessing 10-14 days. I am currently on day 8, and all of a sudden starting to feel some herxing. Hoping it is a good sign that the medication is working.
Mostly looking for some confirmation that this plan seems sound? Thanks again..
