... Hi jwick25. What dose of Doxy will you be taking? Doxy is not effective for Babesiosis. Babesiosis is similar to malaria and needs to be treated with an anti-malarial (often Mepron) together with an antibotic (Zithromax, Biaxin, or Ketek). I highly recommend seeing a Lyme knowledgeable doctor and being properly evaluated for all tick-borne illnesses. If you take the... (21 replies)
... Hi Sarah, welcome to the board! How long have you been sick before getting diagnosed? What doses of Doxy, Ceftin, and Tindimax are you taking?

Co-Infections

... Hi marielynn, welcome to the board! I am sorry you are so sick. From what I understand, when someone has co-infecitons it can make the symptoms of all infections more severe. Are you seeing a Lyme doctor? Many believe the co-infections need to be treated first for Lyme treatment to be effective. This was true in my case. Babesiosis is similar to malaria and needs...

... Hey lizzie I had the exact same reaction when I started my abx. I was taking amox, probenecid and ketek. I woke up with a terrible sore throat and feeling as though a train had hit me. Mine happened about 5 days after starting. The thing is I just thought I was sick and didn't even think about the herx. About a week later the same thing happened again when he changed my...

... Hi dkysh, welcome to the board! I am sorry your son has Lyme disease, but it is good he has been diagnosed. Getting tested for the co-infections is very important. It is estimated that 60% of people who have Lyme disease are co-infected. Having them may affect treatment choice and progress. As someone who has had several co-infections, I know firsthand how important it... (8 replies)
... Hi Diane. I don't know which doctor you are seeing, but I have never heard of a knowledgeable doctor saying the herx happens only once. It happens throughout treatment. Over time as the bacteria load decreases, the herxes should become less intense. ... (10 replies)

... Oh Marsha! I feel so bad that you're back to crappy. Just a few months ago you were fishing! It stinks to go through a good period and believe that you are recovering, only to have the bad parts return. I think of you often and I will keep you and your doctor in my prayers. Please try to remember that you can do it! It may take another few months to get there -... (14 replies)
... I am on three antiboitics, Levaquin, ketek, and Flagyl during my pulse. I love this treatment. While on for a few striaght years I never felt good. During the pulse I get a break where life seems it can come back. I will never beat Lyme so its up to me, to find the mix and doses that make me feel the best. Lyme is slow growing I guess and for me the pulse is great! I... (7 replies)
... Hi Cindy: I am late getting in on this post, but I just wanted to let you know that I have all the issues you described. The electrical shocks and shaking became very bad for me after starting antibiotics. Just be aware that it may happen to you as well, but that has gotten much, much better- it took a long time though. I don't know about taking the doxy once a day. It... (13 replies)
... I'm on two antibiotics and flagel is added at the end of my cycle. I have always been on at least two antibiotics for the entire time I've been treated for over four years. I think it is needed. I started off on doxy buy quickly added others as I got through my first herx. My best reaction to treatment was when in Ketek, Moncyclyn, and flagel this is when I felt the best. (7 replies)

... Hi All: I am three days into my new meds-2000mg Ceftin and 800 mg Ketek. This morning has been a rollercoaster ride. I am having epsiodes of anxiety, which I am getting used to now, but also rage that is really scary-this has not been a big problem for me.
