Hi all: Here's the plan, which makes sense, but I wanted to run it by you. We are having a 2nd IVig in May. DS6 is doing very well, but has minor occasional flares when exposed. Strep titres have gone up/down over the last 2.5 years but no + Strep tests and no niticeable infection. He is one that reacts and has elevated titres due to exposure. He has been on Augmetin and Azith daily for almost 2 years and had his 1st, very successful IVig last Sept. The upcoming IVig is to try to knock out the last of the intermittent PANDAS symptoms. The plan is, at the start of the IVig in May, take off the Augmentin and start 30 days of Clyndomycin. At the same time, 14 days of Rifampin. The Azith will stay on board. After the Clyndo and Rifampin are completed, the Azith will stay on board and then taper down as a prophylaxis. The doc's idea is to blow out any residual Strep. For those that have experience with Clyndo and Rifampin, do they have the same antiinflammatory properties as Augmentin? Does this sound feasible for his gut? He has had some elevated Candida, but is being treated with Diflucan daily. I will keep the Diflucan on board throughout the process, then test him for Candida again....
