I am a 3 year Lyme's sufferer. I am presently off abx and using only Monolaurin and Bio Fibrin together but am experiencing a rash that itches quite a bit. I do not want to stop as I am doing as well on this treatment as I have on abx but am worried about the rash. Is anyone out there taking both of these and experiencing the same?

I'm on monolaurin but not the systemic enzymes. Boy did I herx from it weeks ago with bad chest muscle pain but I started at 1500mg. I also think it made me more "fluey". I'm now worked back up to 1200 mg. after stopping it and doing ok with it. I think it's an excellent product to be taking for Lyme based on my herx reactions. No rash though but I do get them from time to time from Lyme and company. Rashes and itchy bumps. Unless they are raised welts I wouldn't be concerned it's an allergy. Unlikely you would be allergic to either of those. Are the rashes flat?

It's possible that you have Candida (especially since you've been on abx for an extended time) that is being treated by the monolaurin, which is causing a herx that is showing up as the rash. Candida can cause rashes on the skin.

I just started Monolaurin two weeks ago... added to my current protocol of clarithromysin and augmentan. I started with 1/4 tsp and moved to 1/2 tsp. I am feeling achy and tired, chills and sweats and I have reoccuring lyme symptoms that previously were clearing up. I do think this is a Herx and I am determined to stay with the program bc I think I am finally on the right track. I'm not sure I am ready to up the dose yet as I feel somewhat rotten. I'm going to check with my Dr. in a few weeks before adding the bio-film stuff too. I hope this stuff works because my goal is to get off the abx and rely on the monolaurin at some point!!
 
I'm glad to hear that some of us are giving this a shot. Is anyone else taking this with abx?  Do any of you know of success stories with Monolaurin?
 
Thanks!

Sounds you like you are on the right track. I'm currently deciding whether to go back on the monolaurin or see this Naturopath that totally "cured" a customer of mine. I have trouble staying on the monolaurin. A very small amount now (600mg.) makes me very tired (can barely wake up in the morning and also tired at night) as well as feeling fluey and crappy just like you are. It also exacerbates my tingly/burning legs and hits my muscles hard. It's basically a social life ruiner as you don't want to do much of anything while on this stuff. I'm wondering if that alone or with the systemic enzymes would eventually relieve my symptoms. Wish I knew of someone that herxed hard on it and stayed on it.

Thanks again to those who replied. My rash does consist of raised bumps that really itch bad but they are only here and there and not more than 5-10 at any one time. I am back up to the full dose of Monolaurin now and once I got passed the initial herx I have not had one in 3 weeks. I also am seeing a Chiropractor who is more like a naturalpath and has had good success with Chronic Lyme. Right now he has me on a vegan diet with no gluten as well as taking two products which basically boost and stabilize the nervous system. One of them is his own brand so cannot advise except to say that it has high doses of Vitamins C,D, E, B6, Niacin, B12 plus other stuff. Too early to tell yet if it will yield any results but I'm willing to try anything to make this nightmare stop. I think his theory is that Lyme has the nervous and immune systems inflamed and even if the bugs are being killed those have to be dealt with so that the body can eventually defeat the rest of the organisms on its own. We'll see. Hang in there, some of the Chronic folks are finding answers and regaining wellness so we can too. Ekamaponin

I had started monolaurin several weeks ago and after a few days experienced severe back and rib pain and exacerbated joint symptoms. I cut back the dosage and symptoms lessened. I continued on that lower dose but did not feel it was doing anything so I decided to "guinea pig" myself. I stopped taking the monolaurin for a week. There was no change in symptoms. I began taking it again last Sunday and after 1 1/2 days developed a horrific headache, severe left wrist pain, rib pain and back pain. I don't know what this stuff is targeting but it is definitely doing something. I guess I will just continue to take it and hope that it actually has an effect on the LD (although how you are supposed to know if it is targeting Lyme is beyond me).

I have seen many posts on numerous websites about people using either Ultimate Monolaurin or Lauricidin, but I have been unable to locate any reports of its effect on LD after long term use. If anyone has seen anything in this regard or has personal experience (either good or bad) please post same. Thanks!

Thanks for all your replies. When I started with Monolauran several weeks ago, I started at a really low dose 1/4 tsp. ( 750 mg I think). I got a headache immediatly too! ( I am also on two abx). I continued with the 1/4 tsp for a week and then moved to 1/2 tsp. That is when I started to feel all the herxing.... muscle/joint pain and stiffness, eye pressure and inflammation, blurred vision, tingling, tooth pain ... on and on. Also, achy and tired. Today I decided to go back to 1/4 tsp. I'm going to see how I feel. I do not want to stop bc I want this to kill this bacteria inside me... my LLMD has had good success with Monolauran. I'm doubtful at this point that I will ever get to a full dose, but maybe I don't need to. I'm just not sure when I want to add the Bio-film stuff. Please keep in touch and keep me posted every few days to see how you are doing. I am hopeful to hear someone feeling improvement. This disease is so frustrating to me!!!!!

I don't know if this will last but today the joint pain, which has been relentless for the past 4 months, seems to have eased significantly. I don't know if this is due to the monolaurin beginning to work or if I am just going into another remission of symptoms (which usually lasts about 5 - 6 weeks and then they begin to flare again).

I still have not been able to find anyone who actually has used it for any duration to ask what their results were. I am cautiously optimistic.
