I had the liver tests done, because I have been on Penicillin-VK
for a year for an elevated strep titer. My titer finally came
down to normal, but the Antibiotics has helped my Interstitial
Cystitis pain tremendously. I'm symptom free until I try to
quit. My doctor recently switched me to Augmentin for a period,
and I've been on it 10 days, but I'd like to quit. I know it's
not good for me. It helped my rashes/itching by 75%, and my
bladder by 100%. But the medication just seems to be covering
up symptoms only, at least for IC anyways. Also, during this
time, I've developed buzzing/vibration in my hands, legs and
trunk. Also some low-level noises in left ear. I don't
know if it's the drugs, or just coincidence, but these symptoms
do worry me alot.
