Avoiding alcohol tinctures with Tindamax

Dear Stephen,
I may be starting the cyst-buster Tindamax (Tinidazole) in the future, which like Flagyl, has an antabuse reaction if alcohol is taken. I don’t drink, but do use some alcohol-based tinctures such as stephania and red root. Is it okay to switch to capsules instead of tinctures while on Tindamax? I always try to burn off alcohol but am concerned about even a small amount with Tindamax.

Stephen’s response:
You can switch to capsules.

This protocol was incredible. After only a few weeks most of my symptoms were gone. After six months all my symptoms were gone… it has given me my life back.

    Suggestions on what herbs I can take with flagyl? I assume my tinctures would be a no no. I’m being treated for Lyme and babesia. Any suggestions? I’d love to fight these demons.
