Lyme Disease Board Index

Hi Kyle,

there are a lot of people on this board who know more about this than me. but just to respond to a couple things... i was on clarithromycin and azithromycin at different times. they're in the same family as the erithromycin, but i don't know exactly how they differ. both of them worked for me though, but usually they only work for a couple months then you have to move on to another one. right now i'm on omnicef and ketek, and i can feel those wearing off now too.

why is your doc only treating you for one month? in my case, the first month was one of the worst. have you heard of herxing - it made me feel like i was dying during the first month. i herx less often now but when i do, i still feel like i'm dying. i don't know if you'll want to go to police academy while you're being treated for this. but maybe you're stronger than me.

i've been away for a while, so i haven't been following your story. is this the first time you're being treated? i haven't really had diarrhea problems from the antibiotics... i did when i first started them. and when i first started the vitamins on top of them. but it went away in about a week and now my stomach's doing better. i would expect to have some bowel problems though. that's just the way it goes. probiotics and yogurt help. and it shouldn't keep you from pursuing treatment. you'll feel better even if you do have side effects than you would if you don't have treatment at all.

also - why this doc and not an LLMD?
