I wish I had gone with the Cipro/Rifabutin combination now rather than Tetracyline and Amox and Bismut...

Re: Antibiotic dosage. Is this ok?

but is it needed at 3g per day? Ive also heard that you cant take amox and tetra together as tetra makes amox ineffective?

Re: Trying Quadruple therapy. Please help with antibiotics!
