Lyme Disease Board Index

Hi TheHappyMan, welcome to the board!

I am glad you explained your friend's definition of chemo. I have a bunch of questions for you. How long was he sick before getting diagnosed? What IV antibiotic and dose is he taking? Does he have a PICC line? Is he taking oral antibiotics also? Is he seeing a Lyme knowledgeable doctor? Besides Lyme disease, ticks can transmit several co-infections, including Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. Often, people who have Lyme are co-infected. It is very important to be tested because being co-infected will affect treatment choice and progress. Has your friend been tested for these?

Do an on-line search for Dr. Burrascano's Lyme treatment guidelines. He is one of the best Lyme doctors in the country. Towards the end of the guidelines, he discusses supplements that can be beneficial.

I hope your friend responds well to treatment. He is lucky to have you helping him :)
