@n4seth The schedule for taking the Big 3 has to be what is best for you and how you can tolerate them. What Toni1132 said is probably quite good. The only thing I would add is if you need a probiotic you should probably take that first in the morning on an empty stomach. Rifampin can be one hour before or two hours after a meal with a full glass of water. Ethambutol and azithromycin can be taken after breakfast with a full glass of water eight hours before or four hours after your daily multivitamin. Your vitamins and probiotics should be separated from the antibiotics by at least four hours. NOW foods probiotic-10 or Ultra Jarro- Dophilus (50 billion per capsule) are good ones. I follow a schedule a former mentor used during her MAC journey. irene5

Everyone has great suggestions. Welcome to this group. You will find a lot of support here. I learned about nebulizing 7% sodium chloride here and it has really helped. I take Rifampin first thing and I split up the other two. Ethambutol at noon with lunch and Azithromycin at dinner. Taking more than 3 pills at a time can really upset your stomach. But, everyone is different. Welcome and hang in there!
