From this study (4 years ago):
I have been in hospital for a week treated for septasemia due to ecoli getting into the blood stream.
They had me on a drip course of antibiotics as they thought at first it was salmonella however later found it was ecoli.
I am now home on two antibiotics..
Cifran. Ciprofloxacin 500mg. 28 tabs - 2 tabs a day
Metrogyl. 400 mg - 21 tabs - 1 per day
They found a small clot outside the bowel in a vein so to stop it increasing at the moment I also have....
2 needles per day of Clexane 80mg
Coumadin Warfarin at the moment 6 till it gets to the correct dose
The warfarin is for 3 months only they said.
Now to my question...
We have a very highly regarded homeopath who we have used for years. She suggested I take these to keep my bowel healthy whilst on the antibiotics.
She has subscribed a few things for me to take as I go off warfarin and at other stages.
She has given me a course of Nosodes. Senic60/c.veg 30c
7 drops unde tonge 3 times a day for 21 days
Plus digestive Nosodes
I can't talk to my medical doctor about this as they do not agree with homeopathy period.
My question is can I take these nozodes etc above without any effects on the antibiotics I have been subscribed.
Was doing fine until urinary track infection. UA showed infection. C + S sent to lab. Cipro prescribed on a Tuesday along with a shot of Rocefin. By nightfall, unstable, unable to walk, unable to stay awake, lethargy, pin point pupils, high fevers unable to control and major confusion. Talking out of head. Thursday returned to doctor. Rocefin given by IV with fluids. UA showed clear of infection. PRevious C + S not in at this time. Friday admitted to hospital and Cipro d/c'ed. C + S showed Cipro resistant. Rocefin given IV with Sodium Chloride IV. Na was down and INR at 1.4 (to thick). After 3 days treatment, more alert, fever gone, awake and no longer confused. Weak but able to stay awake for longer periods and answer questions.

Lisinopril 25mg provokes horrific depression, despair, inability to navigate back to upbeat, creative state and fear for survival. Dizziness, crippling vertigo, etc every time I move from rest. Reducing dose to 2.5mg makes side effects tolerable, with no noticeable change in therapeutic effect. Car ...
