I have apparently become resistant to rifampin, due to starting and stopping it several times over the last 14 months. I understand this is a common occurrence concerning this particular drug, even though it was always coupled with at least one other anti-biotic. That being said, does this automatically predispose me to also being resistant to rifabutin, which I have yet to begin? I need this particular class of drugs to help eradicate a very aggressive and stubborn case of bartonella, and the only other drug which would compare in effectiveness would be levaquin, which I have consciously opted to no longer take, due to its many detrimental and dangerous adverse effects.

Dr started me on rifampin because my skin test is positive and she won't start RA meds until I take?
