... The only thing I could add would be the cholestyramine or maybe wobenzyme...maybe I will talk to Dr. C again and see what he thinks about that instead of the prednisone route? ... (24 replies)
... I would not take prednisone for a herx. That kind of treatment for herxing is "old school" and has proven to backfire. ... (24 replies)
... Maybe have one of your parents go the drug store and pick up a bottle of 5HTP today. This is a "pre" chemical or what is referred to as a precursor to Serotonin. This is the "feel good" chemical that allows you to sleep restfully. In late stage Lyme, your body loses its ability to manufacture it. Call your doctor today and explain your anxiety level and heightened... (24 replies)

... Just wanted to add that so far, at the end of day 2 on the prednisone that I am still herxing and breaking out into the "lobster"!! ....sigh.... ... (24 replies)
... o One other bit of info i found out about the prednisone is that ic can also mobolize toxins and enxymes in your liver, so maybe thats a good thing too....I can only wait now and see. ... (24 replies)
... So despite my doc telling me to obviously not take any more doxy, he now after talking with him yesterday about my continued herxes, wants to put me on 3 days of prednisone to stop the herxing pattern. Take it 3 bid, for 3 days and then stop. Then I'm supposed to start my new antibiotic of flagyl. ... (24 replies)
... Having late stage lyme...since I was a child, but not diagnosed until fall 2000, Im now 40!! My doctor gave me prednisone for something, anyway...within two hrs I was functioning like I havent in yrs..after a yr of various antib's etc etc. ... (1 replies)
... Well I am glad this little experiment of prednisone is done! ... (24 replies)
... I think that maybe the prednisone is flushing stuff out of you and unlike the doxy maybe things will start to get better in a day or two as some of the build up leaves your body. Let's hope so. ... (24 replies)
... Romans, I also thought that prednisone is counter-indicated with lyme. I'm pretty sure I've heard my original LLMD say that, though the same doc put me on an immune suppressing arthritis drug (enbrel). It is so hard to make decisions like this, when the medical professionals giving the advice are trusted and, you assume, know more than you, but you're just not sure it... (24 replies)
... Hi Romans, I'm so sorry you are having such a rough time. I don't know about prednisone, but the detox baths sound good. I suggest buying the book "Beating Lyme Disease" by Dr. Jernigan as he explains what to do about herx's to feel better and get rid of the toxins. In my opinion it's a fantastic book with tons of information. I'm glad to hear that you made it safe to... (24 replies)
... Dear Romans, I about freaked when I saw prednisone. :eek: I am not a doctor and I know what he gave you is nothing compared to the 1,000mg per day I was given but I really question it because of what steroids did to me. Did he tell you why? Maybe things will get better under your mother's care. I am glad you arrived safe and sound despite the long haul. Enjoy it as... (24 replies)
... and my FP says it's polymyalgia rheumatica, which he figured out because of the eye problems. WBC is 13.4. He notes I'm borderline anemic. Puts me on 60 mg of Prednisone for 9 days, tapering over 3 weeks. Adds Vioxx 50 mg and Naproxyn for the pain. Sends me to a Rheumatologist the last day I'm on Prednisone. ... (2 replies)
... Labs for hepatitis,etc. were negative. I was given Prednisone and was scheduled for more tests. The predisone didn't help at all. Due to the county overload, it was going to be some time before they could get me back in. ... (4 replies)

... ue was unbearable that even taking a shower was a major chore. Family dr was convinced I either had Lyme or Dermatomyositis. He immediately treated me with 60mg prednisone for the scary rash and Doxycycline in case of Lyme. ... (0 replies)
