Nov 16, 2018 · MAC Antibiotic Medication: What time schedule works best for you? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I've been on the big 3 for 10 months now. I feel worse than I did within the first few months of taking these. I'm not sure if I'm short of breath or just anxious, I'm exhausted constantly and feel week through my entire body. I do get frequent loose bowels that seem to not help me retain my nutrients. I just don't know what to do from here. I could use some suggestions.

I watched the video and it does help tremendously. However, the dose of Rifabutin I'm on says "1 capsule twice a day". In the video the Dr says to take it before bedtime. Does it matter if I took both at the same time as she suggested???

Yes!!!! My doctor did tell me that the other day as well as me getting a communication from the National Jewish Hospital in Denver about it. My doctor said that I would most likely be a candidate should my progress continue to be weak. It sounds promising.

Thank you so much for the information. I'm prescribed to take these every day. I've been spacing them out every couple hours but it's such a hassle. I've been curious about taking them all at once. I may try it. Then again, my Infectious Disease Dr is doing another "succeptibility" test on a sputum sample to see if all 3 meds are what I still should be on. I didn't have much improvement in my last CT scan so something may need to be changed. Thanks again.

Hi there. I've been on the same mess of medicines that you are. How and what time of day do you take and/or space your doses out? I'm looking for suggestions to maybe change mine to. Thanks in advance.
