Dr. B's guidelines explain a whole lot. Here is a breakdown of which antibiotics are used with co-infections.


Description, symptoms, and treatments of co-infections:

Babesiosis:- is a malaria-like protozoa illness that invades, infects, and kills the red blood cells. Symptoms include fatigue, night sweats, chills, fever, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, headache, dark urine, muscle pain, joint pain, nausea, and jaundice. Treatment is an anti-malarial combined with an antibiotic--often Mepron with Zithromax (or Biaxin or Ketek).

Ehrlichiosis:- is a bacterial infection that invades and infects the white blood cells. There are two types of Ehrlichiosis: Human Monocytic Ehrlichiosis (HME) and Human Granulocytic Ehrlichiosis (HGE). Symptoms include malaise, fever,
sweating, nausea, dry cough, headache, muscle aches and
pain. Treatment is most often Doxycycline.

Bartonella:- also known as cat-scratch fever is a bacterial infection. Symptoms include swollen, painful lymph nodes, muscle and/or joint pain, nausea, vomiting, chills, anxiety, insomnia, red rashes. Treatment is often Levaquin or Rifampin.

Mycoplasma:- is a bacterial infection. Symptoms include fatigue, breathing problems,
headache, muscle pain and soreness, nausea, lymph node pain, and cognitive problems. Treatment
is usually Doxycycline, Minocycline, Azithromycin, Clarithromycin, or Ciprofloxacin.

For more information on the co-infections, see "Everything You Need To know about Lyme Disease (2nd edition)" by Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner and Dr. Joseph Burrascano's Lyme Treatment Guidelines at:
