Ticker and CG,
My LLMD had not settled on how he was going to treat me till all my labs were in (tested me for lots of stuff). Meantime, I got the new tick bite and he called me in a Doxy script
Pills are 100 mg. Directions say 1 twice daily for 4 weeks. But I have 120 pills, which would equal 2 months.
So I don't know if his intention was to give me 2 months worth, or if the directions are not correct. Because I'm not seeing many doses of 200 mg Doxy per day.
I have one huge problem w/ this Doc. He is impossible to reach. Previous phone calls and emails have not been returned. So I may go on and figure this out for myself. Do you think I should increase the doxy myself? I'm not on any other abx.
Also, I really do not like the doxy, sometimes the heartburn is unbearable, since I can't take a rolaid after it! I also love my dairy, so not as big a problem w/ doxy twice as it would be doxy 3 times per day or more. I'd really rather Amox, because I have had to take 2000 mgs at once for dental procedures, w/ no side affects.
What is your opinion of doxy vs amox? (personally, I want to try LDN, but Dr doesn't know anything about
And CG, I like the sounds of your amox dose. For some reason, I strongly believe you are gonna kick it w/ that. If not LDN, that's what I wish I was on.
And CG, you want to herx, don't you?
