Hello, my father was recently diagnosed with MAI, after battling a staph infection in his lung. He's almost 84 and has already lost a lot of weight. We have tried the antibiotics twice and he's had a horrible reaction each time. Any suggestions? I feel like we're between a rock and a hard place here
I was caring for my dad. After a long bout with lung problems, COPD ect. he lost a ton of weight. His Dr. put him on marinol and he started gaining weight and seemed overall better. He took daily antibiotics, and other meds, the doctor said the marinol is well tolerated with other medications.
