22 hours ago · Any good results from taking Amikacin?? and what were side effects? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

My pulmonary doctor wants me to try this. Seems it can kill MAC bacteria as shone in some recent trials. Does anyone have information about nebulizing this drug? I have not been able to do the big three so it has been more than 10 years since I got MAC and just this year I am finally overwhelmed by it
Down to 88 lbs, lots of coughing and lots of fatigue. Let me know whatever you know about this drug. Greatly appreciated. Flib

When you say "don't tolerate 7% well" what do you mean. Is it discomfort or perhaps damage to the throat or….? Thank you, Flib

I wish it were just an hour or two. I hate it because of the weakness but I stay loyal to the procedures. Are you on 7%….I just switch up to it this week and hope it will make some difference. I thought I wouldn't make it through but today was much easier…tell me it's worth.


Also have hears checked. I lost quite a bit of hearing

/agj53 My neck hurts and I've had some headaches, which I rarely get. I stopped putting my arms threw the vest because it caused pain in my shoulder. I wrap it around my chest, connect the straps and, while I have reduced the pain, it has not gone away. I also wonder what its' doing to my brain. Flib

@toni1132 I lost hearing in my left ear and got off the drug at my doctor's advice. That was ten years ago
