I just started taking Spectracef along with Biaxin and Plaquenil.
It has been two weeks and some symptoms have stopped, mostly joint pain.
Anybody else been using Spectracef?

Is that oral? How often do you take it? How complex are your symptoms? Lots of questions I know. Trying to help my daughter feel better and trying to learn as much new info as possible to help her doc.

It is oral. I take 200mg with breakfast and 200mg with dinner.

I've been on oral abx for almost two years with a few months off.
The Spectracef was added due to severe elbow joint pain and a rash and weakness in my forearms. as well as fatigue and severe neck pain. Before I found a LLMD I had Cognizance problems, weakness,neuropathy, vertigo, head pressure, joint pain and was misdiagnosed with MS.

I had a SPECT brain scan early in treatment that showed hypoperfusion in my brain. My CD57 test was 28. I had a positive FRY test.

I hope that helps

Google Spectracef. It is interesting what it is mostly meant to treat.
