I was on Rifampin for Bart and couldnt handle it many ABX are just to much for me even in small amounts!! I know it works cause for the week I did take it I was a wreck! Hang in there is I could of stayed on it I would have but it wasnt an option, I now take zithromax! It's seem to be helping I just have to work why way up little by little the dosage!! To give you the heads up the Rifampin hit the neurological Lyme hard and made me feel like I was going nuts and it made me more anxious so if it does start to happen to be alarmed I was a the time but my LLMD reassured me it was the Meds!! Drink lots of water!!! Best of luck!! Bart is hard to get rid of mine doesnt want to get lost already! :)
Using my infared sauna helped with the Herx too if you have one or access to one!!! Sweat it out!
Twingirl-Do you still go to Dr Z ?? That was you and your sister that went to him right?? Unless my memory is tricking me again! :)
Hope it helps you!!!
