    I was diagnosed with MAI about 4 years ago. Initial treatment included the standard 3 drugs Rifapin, Ethamutol, and Azithromiazcin. After 1 1/2 years I experienced a severe reaction to Rifapin and had to quite taking the drug . Remained on the two other drugs. Testing this past year has shown the MAI bacteria level has increased in my lungs and I was declared an antibiotic failure. Doctors have started me on a new drug, Aricayce, administered by a Nebulizer. Looking for patients currently undergoing this treatment.
