Hello @kayskid. I am sorry for the discomfort and frustration you are experiencing. I noticed there is a previous discussion you had started in August on the topic of Rifampin and wanted to provide a link back should any of that information be helpful to you now as well: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/rifampin-discontinued-due-to-side-effects-looking-for-feedback

Also, you will notice I have updated the title so it will be easier for others to provide their feedback and experiences going forward.

How have you felt since discontinuing the Rifampin?

I am doing better. Off the RIF and after my abdominal pain issue, I resumed the azythromycin and ethambutol. If I have terrible diarrhea or cramps, I use immodium. My CT scan shows improvement and i submitted a sputum sample last week. I have hardly any cough. I have been on treatment 8 months. I exercise a lot. Keeping fingers crossed!
