Jul 12, 2018 · (MAC/MAI) MYCOBACTERIUM AVIUM COMPLEX PULMONARY DISEASE/BRONCHIECTASIS in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I'm having problems with vomiting and weakness. I couldn't take Rifampin because I was vomiting and now on moxifloxacin and vomiting again. Have no appetite. Also on clarithromycin and ethambutol. Any suggestion

Mar 9, 2018 · MAC antibiotics and side effects in MAC & Bronchiectasis

My doctor recently took me off my meds for a couple of weeks to help me get my strength back. After labs he will put me back on them one at a time. And will change method of taking them. Thinks the rifampin is the culprit. I'm not going to live like this for the next year. I have always been active and this weakness and gastro issues are debilitating.

I also have sudden waves of fatigue and just general weakness. I've only been on meds for 3 weeks so hoping my body adjusts soon. I had been coughing almost continuously but that is beginning to decrease somewhat. Making the decision to begin treatment is personal. As I said, it seems to be working for me. Good luck with your decision.

Feb 12, 2018 · Increase coughing and increase flem in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I’ve just been diagnosed with MAC after years of coughing and no diagnosis. Will be seeing an infectious disease doctor in a couple of weeks. I’m on four kinds of meds and coughing more and spitting up more flem. Also feel I have less energy. Has anyone else dealt with this?
