[QUOTE=kyle1;3703023]Hello,

I am suppose to be starting IV treatment for chronic lymes disease this week, but because of my dirty job and college starting this week I have decided to wait till the end of the month to start because by then I will be done with my job for the winter. My question is what is a good oral antibiotic regimen for neuro lymes that isn't so hard on the system that causes alot of diarhea and stomach issues. My main issues with lymes is the neurological issues. I heard flagyl is a good one but it has alot of side effects. Has anyone used Tindamax, or minocycline for neuro lymes? If so what was your side effects of those and did they work well? I have about 60 or pills of Doxy left over from a surgery I had, would 200mg a day be enough to get through the blood brain barrier? Any help would be greatly appreciative because I just started college and my mind is not with me at all.

Thanks[/QUOTE]

I used Tindamax for 6 months with no ill effects, and only a very slight metallic taste in my mouth. I had previously tried Flagyl and it did not agree with me at all; I had major metal taste in mouth and tingling in the limbs - I had to discontinue it.

My LLMD uses Minocycline on alot of his patients, but I couldn't tolerate it and had to use Cefzil.

200mg of Doxy isn't going to cut it. My previous LLMD had me on 400mg a day and it was working pretty well. I did have to take alot of acidophilus with both regimens to help with the Candida growth, and despite this, I did develop some yeast problems.
