Hi guys, so below is the antibotic program I have been given based off clinical findings. I am on this for 6 wks, see the LLMD again at that point we retest and take it from there.
3 x per day (2 in the am 1 in pm) [b]Doxy 100 mg each[/b]
1 x per day 5 days per week [b]Zitrhomax 600 mg[/b]
3 x per day 2 days back to back [b]Flagyl 250mg[/b]
She also suggested some herbs and acidopholis. Does the above sound pretty standard?
Also, how long does it typically take for one to feel a "herx"?

I am sure you will find excellent advice here.  Is today the first day you are taking everything? The only thing I am on is Doxy 200mg 2x a day. I am on my 9th week. Good Luck. Hope you are feeling well soon!

Wow, I feel like I am on a ton of meds-3 different kinds! Ugh!

I started the doxy last night when I got home, took two this am and will take the zithro this afternoon.

 

Have you had a herx? Are you feeling btr?

I really am not sure about a herx. I am feeling really good. I started exercising last week (4x).  I am feeling a little crappy this week b/c I got my period but I think it is just girl stuff.  At this point I am not sure as to what I should do since I feel so much better.

That is great! What were your original symptoms? Were you dx through a positive at a regular lab?

My first symptom was a swollen knee. I had been at the gym A LOT and doing some fast running. The knee that swelled up was broken in a car accident 16 years prior.  I am 32.  My doc first idea was to test for Lyme.  I thought she was crazy. about a week later I started having skin tingling... my neck hurt and I had some mild headaches.  I was diagnosed about 10 days after my swollen knee. Crazy. I never saw a tick bite. I was diagnosed late July of this year. On Father's Day we bought new bikes and a trailer for our girls. We went out riding at least 5x a week.  My helmet has open slats in the top and the trail we rode on was heavily wooded and grown over. I live in MD and there are lots of ticks. I assume I could have been bitten while biking. I never had ANY weird symptoms prior to my swollen knee. I would remember... I am crazy about my health.  I went on doxy 100mg 2x a day for 28 days and felt better. A few weeks after, I found a tick on me! I went to the doc and she gave me 1 dose of doxy 200mg.  about 5 days later symptoms returned. I had an electric feeling, anxiety, VERY tired and was just not myself. It was terrible. I have been on Doxy since. 200mg 2x a day.  Since the 2nd time I started Doxy I stopped going to the gym but continued taking my girls on a walk every night.  I just started really working out last week.  I am not giving up this time. I am going to get in at least 4-5 days a week.

I go see my Lyme Doc tomorrow. I am not sure I want to continue on ABX.  I would like to try a more natural approach. I am scared though, I want this gone so I am not sure what to do. I have some mild skin crawling usually after exercising but I am not sure if I am just out of shape. I lifted a lot of weights today and did Tae-Bo.  I read a lot on these boards and the side effects of a lot of these drugs scare me. I have two small daughters. They are 2 & 5. I am here alone most of the time and running around to drop off and pick up from school. I can't afford to be spacey or out of it. My husband works a lot.  There is no way he could change his schedule. His work is insane right now.

I just read a post that I will not get rid of this unless I take cyst buster ABX... Anything natural for this?? I am scared of the c. diff bacteria too...  I know it can happen to anyone and that really scares me about taking ABX...

I just feel great, almost back to normal... all this reading and research is making me anxious.
