Do all IV antibiotics cross the blood-brain barrier, or only certain ones?
Is Rocephin the only IV antibiotic that can be used to treat neuro-lyme?
 
Thanks,

I know Vanco is another one they use. I undestand it is very powerful and usually reserved for last. I am sure others will chime in with some more!

Razzle, a few other IV antibiotics used for Lyme are IV Claforan, IV Doxycyline, and IV Zithromax.

Dr. B. discusses IV antibiotics starting at the bottom of page 18 at http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/B_guidelines_12_17_08.pdf

Ticker,

Does those IV Antibiotics cross the blood/brain barrier like IV Rocephin does?
I have Lyme Disease; Lyme Disease DOES NOT have ME!

Thanks for the link. I forgot Dr. B. covers this stuff in his guidelines...
