Hi tickbattler. I am sorry your mom is also dealing with tick-borne illnesses.
From what I understand, the dose of Doxy for Lyme is 300-600 mg daily so her dose is in the range. I believe Doxy can treat Mycoplasma.
The tips regarding Doxy include avoiding sun exposure. You can get a severe burn in minutes even when wearing sunscreen. Do not have any dairy, iron, or magnesium products within two hours of the Doxy or it will not be absorbed properly. It can cause severe nausea. Tell your mom to eat something substantial and non-dairy before taking it. Do not lay down for at least an hour after taking it or you can ulcerate the esophagus. This is very painful. Drink a full glass of water when you take it for the same reason. Make sure your mom knows about taking high-quality acidophilus capsules at least two hours apart from the Doxy.
I hope her treatment goes well.
Hi Minx. Dr. Burrascano list recommended antibiotics and dosages starting on page 17 of his treatment guidelines at http://www.ilads.org/burrascano_0905.html These treatment guidelines are packed with information including diet, exercise, and supplement recommendations. I think it is important to learn as much as possible. Knowledge is power.
What meds are you taking? How are you doing on them?
Hi Minx. I am glad you are improving!
Do you have co-infections?
