              Since February, I have had MRSA 7 times, was hospitalized for IV a/bs, and will be taking Tetracycline for the next 6 months. In April, my gyno found that not only did I also have a currently active infection of Epstein Barr Virus, but it was reactivated, and as of the blood work last week, still is. Kind of confusing....

              Daily Medications: Elmiron, Cymbalta, Baclofen, Nexium, Pyridium, Adderall, Tramadol, Kolonpin, Tetracycline
