oh that makes sense. if the dr doesn't believe in co-infections, you would never get better. Unless you are the lucking one in a million that gets lyme without a co-infection.
I've remained symptom free for a while now. I usually make it 2 months before things start creeping back. I keep doing 3 months on abx and 2 months off. I run about 99% of my formal self, and the first symptoms to creep back is a few muscle twitches here and there. Each time i come off abx, it gets longer and longer without abx before it starts creeping. I have been treating myself for 2 years now so i guess i have more flexibility than some. That way i'm able to see which combos work and which don't. Maybe i have licked the bart and babs. Who really knows.

If you want to save your $, time etc. I reccomend N-acetyl Cysteine and alpha lipoic acid supplementation to increase Glutathione levels. Both are responsible in increasing glutathione levels in the body.
I've taken both of these for a couple years now and this may be the reason i am doing well. Alpha lipoic acid itself is a great super antioxidant and has so many uses. Combine alpha lipoic with milk thistle and you have the greatest protection for your liver during long term abx use. ALA combined with milk thistle is a common treatment in europe for those that suffer liver damage.
I also higly recommend you take Vitamin C along with the N-acetyl cysteine. Long story but it is highly advised.
