QUESTION: 5. Finally, the last bit of information that I need some help with is this: I have a rheumatologist and he has NEVER said anything about treating RA with antibiotics. I had to call him this morning and ask him to refill my Prednisone and to call me out something for pain (This is the first time I’ve asked for pain meds in 30 years). I also told him that my family doctor was going to treat me with the AP. I was expecting a fight but instead he called me out a prescription for (excuse my spelling) doxycycline, 100 mg per day, 7 days a week. Okay, I’m soooo new to all of this but everything that I’ve read suggests treating strep (I lived with it nearly my entire childhood) and to use the Minocin 2xs a day on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday? Any advice here? I’m wondering if I should just use my family doctor who is willing to follow the protocol.
ANSWER: Both you and your rheumatologist are wrong. Given the length and severity of your rheumatoid arthritis, your only choice is to take Minocin, 100 mg viag canadian pharmacies, twice a day, every 12 hours, 7 days per week, in combination with Zithromax, 5 days per week, Monday to Friday afternoons, between 4 PM and 8 PM, 500 mg on Mondays, and 250 mg on Tuesdays to Fridays, for a total weekly dosage of 1,500 mg.
