quick history, I got lyme around june 1st, blood tests taken mid june showed positive for lyme, wb and igg or m i forget. i took doxy for 30 days, then i went to dr c in kisco and started another 30 days of amox. blood test was taken then as well. showed positive again with co-infection ehl. started another 30 days of amox and now its about done. i think i can say that i am feeling better, however, should i take another blood test? i mean will there be a point where a blood test will show negative for me? how do i know when to stop taking meds? is it just "ok i feel better lets stop?"

The meds are usually taken up to two months after you are feeling better.

What dosage are you taking for Amoxycillian?

200mg of doxy for 30 days, 1 100mg tablet 2x day
3000 mg of amox for 30 days, 2 500mg tablets 3x day
3000 mg of amox currently in the 25th day of 30 supply, same dosage.

This is copied from the ILADS website:

Dosage

Increasingly, clinicians recommend that certain drugs used for Lyme disease be given at higher daily doses: for example, 3,000–6,000 mg of amoxicillin, 300–400 mg doxycycline, and 500–600 mg of azithromycin. Some clinicians prescribe antibiotics using blood levels to guide higher doses. Close monitoring of complete blood counts and chemistries are also required with this approach.
