i just need to know from Wise Young or an SCI nurse what the proper dosing schedule is for flagyl when treating Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth.
i was treated w/ 2 weeks of cipro last month, and it helped my abd pain A LOT! but it didn't fully eradicate my symptoms. now the doc wants to wait a couple months to do the hydrogen breath test [which isn't even a good test for SIBO, but there's nothing else]. i'm not willing to do this wait & see approach. April 6th will be 6 years of horrible abd pain, w/ doctors always taking a wait & see approach. this is the FIRST treatment that has helped. according to this website, provided by an SCI Nurse here at CC http://www.medicinenet.com/small_int...owth/page6.htm both flagyl and rifaximin are also treatments. i am going to use them.
i need to know the mg/dosages/times per day for these meds. after 6 years, and finding something that's working, i am going to self medicate. please help me w/ the proper dosing info.
