Jan 16, 2017 · I was diagnosed with MAC in May 2015. in MAC & Bronchiectasis

The CBD that I am taking is made from hemp and contains .3% THC which is legal in Mississippi.

Hi ColleenThank you for your response to my post.  I looked on the list of drugs that interact with CBD and none of the three antibiotics are listed.  Since CBD is an inflammatory, I would think that it would help and not hinder.  I haven't talked with my doctor about it because doctors sometimes get upset if you go beyond the normal prescribed medicines.  CBD is legal in Mississippi as long as it has a minimum amount of THC in it.  Since the CBD that I am taking is made from hemp, there is .3% THC, which is the legal limit.  I may re-think the vaping though, because after two days, I developed a horrific cough!  But my husband has the same thing, so I believe we must have bronchhitis.  I have an appointment with my doctor in the morning and will find out more then.

I too was diagnosed with MAC in May of 2015 and have been on the 3 antibiotics since then. I take all three meds on M-W-F, but appreciate the post about splitting it up and taking the Rifampin on different days. I was very nauseated along with diarrhea for the first few months taking the antibiotics, but that has subsided somewhat since taking them all before bedtime. However, I have had a persistent cough for months now which won’t go away. I even had an upper GI which showed no reason for the cough. My doctor put me on Prilosec for an unspecified length of time which he said helped him with his cough. I feel like I have phlegm constantly in my throat which causes me to have to clear my throat and then I have coughing spasms. which It is worse at times than others. After 6 months of antibiotics I had another CT scan which showed that the bacteria was the same – no better and no worse. I started taking CBD oil several months ago which helps me sleep better and now am vaping the CBD oil which I am hoping will help the antibiotics work FASTER!!!!
