Hi Marta–
I take 250 mg of azithromycin every day at the same time I take 600 mg of Rifampin and 1000 mg of Ethambutol. I’m having some of the same bad side effects that I had before. The stomach problems are the worst. It’s still not quite as bad as last time when I finally had to stop but it’s not easy. I’m sticking to taking the meds between 4-6 am so I can get the most undisturbed sleep. I also take 2 capsules of the probiotics with lunch and again with dinner. NJC recommended getting 70 grams of protein daily as well as taking vitamin and calcium supplements. I haven’t been able to do that yet. They also suggested I have the little flap in the lung removed but I’m shying away from that. It seems that once one starts with the procedures it never stops.
