Missed dose causing tics to resurface

Recommended Posts

Our ds was stable and then one day we missed giving him his antibiotics the entire day and only got to it around 8 that evening - with just the missed morning and afternoon dose, we saw some tics resurface.

 

why do just two missed doses make the tics come back - given that he has been on antibiotics for a while,I would think it would take a couple of missed days for the symptoms to resurface. It’s very disheartening - seems they are always right beneath the surface.

 

what has been your experience?

We haven't had that experience - our gains with have been much more gradual.  But each child is different, and I am not at all surprised at your different experience.

One explanation might be the immune-modulatory properties of some abx.  In other words, in addition to fighting infection, some abx might be anti-inflammatory (or do other stuff), and it might be those other properties that are keeping a flare at bay.
