Meaning no issues with memory or fatigue?

Barring side effects...fairly well then.

Hi Hoping. I noticed your search in finding who is doing well .. on or off abx..

I sure wish you luck. I have not heard of that many.

I have a friend who is doing very well on Salt C and Off abx and she was very bad off.

I think the abx can get you so far and then you got to take it from there with support of your immune system and diet and exercise and the ones who do not do abx do seem to do something like the IV work on the blood like siver and uvb and ozone and peroxide etc... Very costly.. yes and then there are those who do all that and it does not help at all.

There are no good one answers. sadly. I wish.. And if there are please someone correct me.

I am currently on the antibiotic Ceftin, Zhang herbs (Coptis, HH and Circulation P) and also LDN (Low Dose Naltraxone).  (I have Lyme Disease and MS.)  I don't say this too loud, but I almost feel "normal."  I have taken a gamut of different oral antibiotics (Doxy, Biaxin, Zithromax, Cedax, Minocycline, etc.), done the IV Rocephin, and tried the Cowden Protocol.  I no longer need a daily afternoon nap, nor am I in bed by 8:30 every evening.  I "go, go, go" the entire day and have the normal drive of a 45-year-old.  And even more unbelievable--I bought a pair of high heels two days ago.
I don't know if I've finally found the combination that works for me, or if it is an accumulation of aggressively attacking these diseases over the past four years.  My gut tells me it's a combination of both.  As far as I know, I am on the Ceftin indefinitely.  Otherwise, within 2-3 weeks of going off the antibiotic, I have a major flare.  I don't know if this is a permanent or temporary improvement, but I will take it for whatever it is.  I am anxious to see the results of my yearly brain MRI in August of this year.
I pray thanks to God multiple times EVERY DAY for letting me have this time of "normalcy," and I will never, ever take my health for granted again.  Every day is a blessing, and I try to make the most of it. I am also grateful for my doctor who has stuck by me through thick and thin for the last four years and helped me get to where I'm at today (Dr. H. in Hyde Park, NY.) 
I continue to pray for others with these illnesses and hope you find your own miracles.  PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP!!!

I think the key is catching it asap. I have a friend that was diagnosed and went on abx for 3 months and so far (three years later) is still fine. My son had a friend in college that came down with Bells Palsy and it was Lyme and after abx he is also fine. So, I think its how early you get the diagnosis that seems to make the difference with how we recover.   D
