One week on just benicar and now I have a really bad urinary infection, I had an emergency visit to Non Mp doctor who has prescribed Trimethoprim at 300mg per day for 7 days. I need advice on what to do in this circumstance? I haven't taken anything as yet.

I still have Doxycycline and Roxithromycin from my previous treatment that I could pulse if either one of those  would clear the UTI because I dont think I can wait for the Mino which I was hoping to start in a few days. I dont want to upset the Benicar blockade thats now in place if I can help it,and I am scared to take the Trimethoprim. I could use some guidance please.

Hi, Robin

I'm sorry to hear you have the UTI problem, same thing happened to me early on.  I just stopped the MP and took the antibiotic, could  waste time waiting.  Then just started the MP again, waiting about 48 hours to start benicar again.  You might find the thread under the old one "bladder infection"

However, Trever did eventually get back to me and say that the sulfa drugs might be o.k. on the protocol.  I don't recognize your drug,

Good luck.

Jill

Thanks for those links, UTI getting worse. It's so good to have a support group!

Dr M says "Sulfa/Trimeth that is used in Phase 3 is safe to mix with Benicar and you will find it works best at low doses ,pulsed at the same rate as Mino "

My script is for 300mg OF TRIMETH daily,any ideas what I should reduce that dose down to so as not to halt the Benicar? I am quite happy to pulse the Trimeth every 48h. Maybe this is a Herx as my urology was one of the first places to be affected when I contracted "SPOTTED FEVER".

Dr Marshall says in that link >

"Sulfa/trimeth is used in phase 3 of the MP, as it is an Antimetabolite Antimicrobial, with a different mode of action on the CWD bacteria. It is safe to mix with Benicar, as long as you carefully watch the herx. You will find it works best at low doses, pulsed at the same rate as the Minocycline." <<

Meg will comment further..

Robin,

Trevor's advice is based on treating CWD bacteria. Now, you are dealing with an acute infection. You would need to get your urologist's approval for any change in his treatment plan and I'm not sure he would agree that Benicar and low dose trimethoprim are the answer.

This simplest and probably the most effective course of action would be to discontinue your Benicar. You can do this abruptly if you are not using it to control high blood pressure. Then take the trimethoprim as ordered. It's only a week's delay in getting started on the MP. Wait 48 hrs after completing the course of Trimeth to be sure it has cleared your system and then put the Benicar blockade in place again with 40mg q6h.

Best,

Meg
