pdessena, I am not a Lyme expert, but have done lots of reading. It is generally recommended the abx for 6-8 weeks, I believe. Because the spirochetes reproduce every 4 weeks, most LLMDs believe the abx must be taken for at least 6-8 weeks, to knock them all out.
I'm sure you can find some expert advice on treatment of Lyme (like Dr. Burr) and print it to take to the Dr.
I will defer to anyone on here who has other advice.
Bit 1972: Acute and chronic tonsillitis, UTI, miscarraige, appendicitis, hypoglycemia, chronic neck pain w/ crushed vertibrae, chronic severe back pain, mitral valve prolapse, depression, resolution?
Bit Mother's Day 2007: Lyme, Babesia microti, hypothyroidism, EBV, HHV6, Parvovirus B19, low adrenals &misc other hormones, depression, anxiety, more of the above.
What don't these nasty bugs cause?
CD57= 60, so we're in pretty good shape.
