Hi - after treating MAI for a year with the big 3 (azithromycin, rifampin, ethambutol) with no improvement, we essentially doubled the dosage + used Amikacin via nebulizer (after a visit to National Jewish Health). Over a year later, the MAI was gone - hooray - and I went off the meds. Then, last year, I contracted pneumonia twice and, in December, the MAI reappeared. I'm back on the big 3 (not yet Amikacin) and will continue for a year. HOWEVER, at this point, I'm looking at alternatives (in addition to healthy eating, exercise, etc.). Any suggestions? People have recommended: vitamin D supplements, Bacteril, even colloidal silver! I would really welcome opinions as to whether any alternative approaches are useful. Thanks so much?
