Hi rcenters. From what I understand, Flagyl or Tinidazole needs to be taken with another antibiotic. Tinidazole is similar to Flagy but it is supposed to be easier to tolerate. With Flagyl, it is a good idea to start off with a low dose and build up. When taking Flagyl make sure you do not have alcohol of any kind (including mouthwash etc.) or you can get really sick.
Regarding your question about acidophilus, are you asking about taking them at the same time? They need to be spaced out by at least two hours or the antibiotics will cancel out the acidophilus.
Hi sher004. From what I understand, Mepron needs to be taken with Zithromax, Biaxin, or Ketek to work properly. Dr. Burrascano discusses this on page 24 of his guidelines at http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/B_guidelines_12_17_08.pdf He also recommends adding the herb Artemisinin.
Tinidazole is similar to Flagyl, but it is supposed to be easier to tolerate. Maybe you could talk to you doctor about it.
How long have you been getting treated?
