Mycobacterium simiae

My daughter has been receiving ceftazidime and amikacin, followed by meropenem and amikacin and clarythromycin 500 mg bid. Because of gastrointestinal side effects, the dose of clarythromycin was recently reduced but my daughter had to stop this treatment due to these side effects. Is there another oral treatment for M. simiae?
The treatment of pulmonary infection with Mycobacterium simiae is complex and the details of this treatment should be discussed directly with your physician. If your daughter experienced side effects in relation with this treatment, I suggest you contact directlty your physician.
