I am just curious what different LLMD's rx with Oral Flagyl weather you take it a full 7 days a week or like for 4 or 5 days and 2 or 3 off.
How long where you on it?

I was recently treating the cyst form with Diflucan and Amoxy for the intracellular form, I have't had pain for about a year and all of the sudden started having severe muscle pain again in hips, shoulders upper back. We are now going after cyst form with Flagyl, I am having a lot more pain, as a result I am sure of die-off. I thought I was almost done with treatment (14months) I was feeling great with a CD-57 of
254 (LabcorP) and almost ready to come off and then BAM!!! I guess I am glad it happened now and not a year from now, but I am back on pain meds until the die-off lessens and I start feeling better. Just another bump in the road I guess.

My husband was on flagyl for 90 days, the first 60 days he herxed almost constantly so llmd pulsed 4 days on and 3 days off. At the end we started IV Rocephin which has been only 11 days now and no major herxing.We are seeing very slow improvement. No pain meds for several days now. Hoping for some major improvement soon. Good Luck to you. Bev

Thanks for your response, I am wondering if you do pulse it does it mean you have to stay on it longer??? From what I have read and I want your opionions out there. Do you feel Flagyl is the most effective cyst busting abx?

I did not post this in the first one doc thinks also that this could be Yeast mimicing Lyme symptoms. I was on diflucan for 4 months. He believes I became possibly resistant to it. So she changed me to another antifungal in the same family. So I am hoping with treating the yeast and cyst form more aggresively I will start feeling as good as I was.
