Hi, I am new to the group. I have been to the ID doctor and was prescribed Rifampin at 300mg, Aziithromycin at 500mg, and Ethambutol, at 400mg. I have not started any of them since I was told by the doctor not to drink alcohol at all while taking them and I wanted to enjoy the holidays! There is no warning on any of the vials to avoid alcohol. What are you guys being told? Also, is it true that, for the most part, the oral meds are the only way to go. I am concerned about the side effects. Did any of you get a second opinion on the treatment? If so, can you recommend anyone in the Phoenix area? I was diagnosed with MAC only. Thanks for any input!
