my nuero dr. has fibro herself and self treated with cipro for 2 years. she said she was going to retire before this and now feels better than ever. she is willing to prescribe these for me. she is a little spacy and not good about questions she just knows it worked for her. anyone who has done long term abx can you help me out? best kind and dosage to start on, side affects,has it helped. anything you would like to share would be appreciated. i have a prescription in hand for 3 rounds of zithromax, but afraid to start until i asked here.
