    The antibiotic is not recommended, because you get pretty violent stomach cramps, diarrhea, etc. It took 3 days and never again

    Clarithromycin for Borreliose; Helicobacter pylori gastritis

    Simultaneous intake of Amoxi 3 times daily and Clari 2 times daily for Helicobacter pylori and a feverish, chronic Borrelia infection. At first I was absolutely thrilled, because already on the second day my increased temperature for months dropped by one degree. Especially after taking the Amoxi grabbed me from the 2nd-3rd. Every day, however, the most extreme fatigue I’ve ever experienced, so I slept for several hours after each tablet, so the whole of the day. In addition, it hit me a bit on the stomach, mild stomach cramps, heartburn, mouthburn increased while taking more and more, although I can not say whether this was caused by Amoxi, Clari or both. These complaints could be avoided, however, if I had eaten as recommended before taking enough. In addition, I still had a disturbing metallic taste in my mouth and strangely everything tasted spicy, even water. From about the 4th intake day, I got more and more heart palpitations and later cardiac arrhythmia, which is why the treatment had to be stopped eventually. These heart misfires still continue today, 5 weeks after ingestion. Nevertheless, I find the medication recommended, as they are much better tolerated than these entries suggest here and if I read sentences like I would not take this voluntarily again, I can only shake my head. Sometimes antibiotics are the only effective therapy and for a few days side effects are better than the alternative of not getting well at all! One should not forget that here above average rate many people who were dissatisfied with the drug. And especially in the use of antibiotics against diseases such as Lyme disease, many complaints are not side effects, but Herxheimer reactions.
