Any good results from taking Amikacin?? and what were side effects?
I am new to this forum, but not new to bronchiectasis and MAC.I had my first sign of bronchiectasis in 2000, finally diagnosed in 2011 and.by then I also had a MAC infection. Took the triple cocktail for two years (2012-2014) until my vision started to be affected. I've been on and off various antibiotics the last few years but now since October I've been having more flares and last week CT scan shows disease progression. My ID Doc retired from private practice..and I've only had my PC and Pulmonologist..I'm about to get a referral to a new ID…no specialization in MAC..and I don't know what to expect. I will no longer take many of the drugs because of side effects that were pretty severe. So…big question….Who here has taken Amikacin??? and what kind of side effects did you have?? I am most likely going to Mayo in Jacksonville but I know my options are really limited. I just want some insight. Thanks.
