Discussions that mention clindamycin

Arthritis board

I stumbled on this quite by accident, and it sounds very interesting as well as promising. I've spoken to quite a few people who swear by it. I was wondering if any of you have considered or tried it- and if so, if it works. Some research studies show that auto-immune disorders are caused by infections, mainly mycoplasma and chlamydia. Some doctors order long term antibiotic therapy (some are clindamycin and minocycline). By long term, I mean up to a couple of years. Those who started the treatment early in their disease have said they were cured, others that started later have a disappearance of syptoms, as well as joint damage. I found two web sites, 7 research studies, and have talked to people who swear by it. Any thoughts?
