Gosh, I'm sorry, CG. Yeah, I agree, you better call the Doc tomorrow. Maybe that dosage is correct, but maybe you'll have to taper down and then work up again if your herxes are really bad. I hope your Dr knows you best! Please let us know what he says, OK?
Ticker, yeah my Dr is an LLMD, but it's a side practice for him, he mainly works the ER in a little town in KS. His initials are JD. He is on the Board of the Lyme Association of Greater Kansas City and he formerly worked w/ Dr. R in Kansas City.
Since the first bad heartburn attack w/ my very first dose, most of the other doses have been OK. I drink a lot of water w/ it and eat something first, too. I'm just used to a little milk and a little more dairy when taking meds. I wonder if perhaps the 200 mg/day dose is cautionary, but I'll have more pills on supply if the bite happens to make me sick?
I think I know about
all the LLMDs in my area, but I would like to know if you have any more on your list? I really need to find one covered by my ins (and am on one's waiting list). I will email you, OK?
CajunGrl, please hang in there. If you are feeling this bad, maybe you should skip your doses the rest of today and in the morning until you can talk to him? Again, please let us know. Unfortunately, you are going to be our amox expert.....
