Is anyone taking antibiotics as a preventative. I have been taking three per week since April when I was diagnosed. I havn't had any infection issues. I am taking 15 tablets a day - used to be 20 so I would like to cut some out. There is so much conflicting advice from experts and I tend to trust this site more. I take azatrioprine as well and I saw on the leaflet that you should inform your doctor if you are taking the antibiotic I am takin g. I have had no rheumy for 6 weeks and I see a new one on the 17th August. I am pleased to say I have been well for two days! A real bonus for me. Now on 26 mg of Pred and slower reduction although the new rheumy still insisted I reduce at 5 mg a week having spoken only to my GP! Many thanks to everyone.
