Has anyone had any experience with this Marshall Protocol?

Was it effective?

It sounds interesting with good user reports

Hi adamt,

Welcome to the forum! I'm glad you found us and hope you will enjoy talking here and learning.

I'm sorry I do not have any experience with the Marshall Protocol. A long time ago, I read about it but I can't remember why I felt it was not for me. I do not know anyone personally that has tried it. Maybe you can search through the old posts and try to find members that talked about it.

Best wishes to you, bablymers mom

From what I've read, it looks like antibiotics are given in lower doses and are pulsed. It also talks about not taking Vitamin D and prednisone. I agree that we should not take prednisone but haven't read enough on the reason for not taking Vitamin D. Here is a great link explaining it:

I know some people that have tried the Marshal Protocol for Lyme and while some felt better initially, all felt much worse later. You take a medicine called Benicar, pulsed low dose antibiotics, and avoid all sources of Vit. D. The Marshal Protocol uses high doses of Benicar which is a blood pressure medicine. Avoiding sunlight and vit. D is very difficult if you live a somewhat normal life.

I know of at least 6 people that tried it and did everything they were supposed to but ended up stopping within 12-18 months because they felt they were getting worse.

Unless you find a doc willing to go along with it, I don't know how you'd get the high doses of Benicar. There is no generic so it would probably be expensive.

I took Benicar, at a low dose, for about a month for hypertension. It lowered my blood pressure too well and I had some weird side affects. It wasn't like a herx. I had to stop taking it and I was glad because it was too expensive.
