Post doxycycline
Jul 28, 2009
... It's me again.. =] I have a question. I'm on 2 weeks of doxycycline and I was fine (a little tired) until day 7. Then I became pretty sick. It is now day 9 and I'm still feeling pretty crummy (knees are weak, legs are tired, feel kinda jittery/shaky.) From experience, is one supposed to feel better toward the end of my 2 week cycle (100mg doxycycline 2x daily)?? If I... (1 replies)

... Hey ncgirl, I called my GP today to find out exactly what they are treating me for and she said CFS. I have not heard of using doxy to treat CFS, I guess this is a new idea. She went on to say that it has worked on 70 percent of patients. I have been taking it a little over a month without any differance in symptoms. She has made me an appt. to see this ID Dr. How long did... (14 replies)

... I'm Beth 33 yo mother of 2. I've been throught the ringer for the past year, so I will start at the begining of all this nonsense. Last year in June, I found a deer tick on my inner thigh (I live in ocean county NJ, high occurance of lyme). I removed the tick, cleaned the area and kept an eye on it. Couple days later it became very red and itchy, and the area increased in... (7 replies)

... Do a follow up! :) Don't be passive in the face of Lyme Disease. The time to beat it is now. Ask for another month of doxy. Blood testing is not accurate in determining whether you are "cured". All that blood tests can do is confirm that you were infected, but they are very unreliable. If you still feel ill after another 4 weeks of doxy then you might need to consider the... (1 replies)
... My LLMD has me on a regimen of 30mg Benicar, 500mg Cefzil (similar to Ceftin), Vitamin-D supplementation (was very low) and 500mg daily Tindamax. The Benicar and Vit-D reduce inflammation so the abx can get to the cysts/spirochetes more easily (as the Lymes creates inflammation around itself to protect itself from the immune system), the Cefzil kills the spirochetes (or...

... Hey all. Thanks for your post srocc20655, I'm bummed for you!! Sometimes I wonder if 600mgs is just too much of a good thing. I suppose it depends on the degree of symptoms. ... (26 replies)
... Thanks for that information TINUVIEL. I was tested for 2 different things that you can get from a tick. I'm not sure what they were though. The test was done on Tuesday 6/20, I have to go back to the doc on 7/11 to see how I'm feeling and to get the results back. Also I was around a couple friends that did have sore throats over the weekend, so I could have gotten it from... (7 replies)

... Hi Denise, I wanted to thank you in addition for all of the useful information in your post. To be honest with you, I didn't even know there were coinfections that should be tested for, and never even thought to question the duration or strength of my antibiotics, I'm so greatful to you for bringing all of this to my attention!! I had made an appt with a specialist for... (11 replies)

... Kelly, I am happy to help. I don't consider it whining and complaining when you are dealing with so many symptoms. Yes, I think you should see another doctor. Yes, it can make a difference to be treated with antibiotics. No Lyme test is completely reliable and a knowledgeable doctor knows this. I know of one who comes highly recommended in Jackson. Would you like the... (12 replies)
... I was diagnosed with Lyme in September 2001. I had the classic bull's eye rash. A few days before the rash showed up, I had extreme fatigue, achiness in my hips I had never experienced before, such that I had to go home from work, and upon arriving, had to lie down, on the floor. I knew something was wrong, since Id never felt anything like this before. It seemed like the... (12 replies)
