I take 1500mg Tindamax(Tinidazol) with Biaxin1500mg/d and Ciprobay1000mg/d.

I never saw people who take this huge amount of AB.

Do you think is it safe?
Or do you know any LLMD who will answer for my email if I ask him?
I'm from Europe, so I cannot go to the US now.
Tanks.
have lyme for about 4.5 years. I've just got positive lyme test.

Hi hope,

I'm going to bump your post up to see if you get some responses:)

I was on that amount of Tindi for over a year. I also was on Biaxin and Ceftin in high MG's at the same time.

Hi hope_29.  Are you being treated by a Lyme doctor?  Can you discuss this with him/her?  I don't think a doctor would email you without having seen you and/or knowing your history.

Many Lyme doctors follow Dr. Burrascano's treatment guidelines. He lists recommended doses of Flagyl (Metronidazole) as "Metronidazole: 500 to 1500 mg daily in divided doses."  You can find this on the bottom of page 18 at http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/B_guidelines_12_17_08.pdf  Other antibiotic doses are listed there also.

Thank you for answers.

I asked the doctor, who is LLMD, about amount and time.

And also, because he told me that lyme doesn't cause heat intolerance, I sent him an article about it: http://www.rifelabs.com/heat-and-lyme.html

He told me this article is not true, and don't read about lyme, because you don't understand it, it is even hard for a doctor.

Also I asked him, why I have to stop taking ABs after 8 weeks.
He said, because we will see where we are.
I heard from other lyme patients that he gives 7-8 weeks treatment with about 6 months breaks.
have lyme for about 4.5 years. I've just got positive lyme test.
