Feelings
Dec 13, 2007
... Hey McBlues- I am hanging in there, my friend. I am off antibiotics for the first time in two years. It was actually because of stomach issues that I stopped but if you can believe it, it was Plaquenil and not antibiotics that did me in. I do not feel like I am immediately backsliding for the first time, and I think the 6 months of Zithromax/Mepron and then half way... (18 replies)

Doxy Questions
Dec 9, 2007
... Hi Unlucky. I often wondered this myself. Why don't doctors prescribe both at the same time to cover all bases? I've been on all kinds of antibiotics: Ceftin, Omnicef, Biaxin, Doxy, Malarone, Tindamax, Levaquin, IV Rocephin and IV Zithromax. The only one of all those that seems to work for me is the Levaquin, which my LLMD prescribed on a hunch for Bartonella (even... (2 replies)
... Hi Rodney99. Currently I am on Levaquin (for Bartonella co-infection), plaquenil and IV Zithromax. Over the past three years, I have tried Omnicef, Ceftin, Biaxin, Doxycyline, IV Rocephin, Tindamax and Malarone. There may be a few more I tried, but I can't remember - :) Each person responds differently to antibiotics. It depends on how long you were infected, which... (12 replies)

IV Levaquin
Nov 21, 2007
... Hi Kelly. I am on oral Levaquin and I also respond well to it. I love it! I've been on it since June and I hope to stay on it for a long time. I take Levaquin for a Bartonella co-infection. Do you take it for Lyme or for a co-infection? I am also on IV Zithromax. It's only been 7 weeks so I don't know if it's working or not. I didn't know Levaquin came in an... (4 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?

... Hi sandishtiro. Unfortunately, there is no one med that will treat everything. Babesiosis is a malaria-like protozoa illness that invades, infects, and kills the red blood cells. Symptoms include fatigue, night sweats, chills, fever, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, headache, dark urine, muscle pain, joint pain, nausea, and jaundice. Treatment is an anti-malarial...

... Hi Gebe. I think you are amazing! It astounds me what so many of us go through to get properly diagnosed and treated. I am so glad you fought for answers for your son and that he is getting the treatment he needs. The usual dose of Mepron is 2-3 teaspoons daily and Zithromax 500-1200 mg daily, so he is on the proper doses. I had a severe case of Babesiosis, but it... (11 replies)
... Hi Divermon. I think the dairy issue is significant. I believe that taking dairy, iron and magneisum productes within two hours of taking the Doxy will interfere with its absorption. It is very important to be tested for the co-infections Babesiosis, both types of Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. IgeneX can test for all of these except Mycoplasma. ...

... Hi Andy, welcome to the board! What doses of Doxy and Amoxicillin are you taking? Are you seeing a Lyme doctor? Many doctors do not understand Lyme and treat with outdated protocols. Besides Lyme, ticks can also transmit several co-infections including Babesiosis, two types of Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. It is estimated that 60% of people who...
