I’m new, here, the spouse of a MAC patient, who is on his second round of Rx, this time with Rifampin added to Ethambutol and Azithromycin. Last time he couldn’t tolerate the Rifampin. This time his angel of a Primary added Ondansetron (4 mg., dissolve on the tongue some time before eating). It has made a huge difference.I believe it is usually prescribed for the nausea associated with chemo.
In any event, I hadn’t seen it mentioned here – I might’ve missed the post.

so sorry to hear. Where do you live? Where is your husband being treated? Do you have an infectious disease Dr. if not you need to find one and continue your own research about this nasty bug. Best.

Thanks for your reply. I’m a privacy freak, so will not talk about where we live. His care is good/adequate but kids are on us to get to Mayo for a second opinion/treatment plan, so we’re up for that.

@macspouse, Hello there! Welcome to our forum. Thank you so much for posting about the Ondansetron, I will add that to my list of meds and ancedotes. That tidbit may be helpful to someone else. I love it when I see helpful spouses on this site. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
