I am on my last 2-3 weeks of Amox.  Dosage is 2 X 875mg, twice per day, so it's a pretty good dose.  I don't know how long it will take to find a Dr who can help, so I hope to maximize the Amox as best I can.  I also have possibly a couple of weeks worth of Doxy (hidden in the cupboard cause I hate it!)
I am about halfway thru my 2nd month of Amox.  Do you believe it would be best to finish it off at the prescribed dosage, or possibly to reduce the dosage and make it last longer?  Or pulse it?  I believe that it is possible I have enough abx to whip most of the spirochetes --  I believe it is possible that I am whipping the lyme, however not the other stuff, like parasites.
Do you believe that if I whip the Lyme, that my thryoid & adrenals would go back to normal? Would whipping the lyme help me to naturally overcome the viruses, since I believe that I have them due to a beat up immune system caused by lyme?
I think I have asked enough questions for one day, but I hope we are all able to learn a lot. I have to go to my 2nd job which kicks my butt (ouch!), so I will definitely be cranky by the time I return tonite.
Please hang in there, everyone.  Each and every one of you are hugely significant parts of these impossible puzzles!

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.

Hey +Lyme-
From what I remember reading, your body will have a great deal of trouble getting Lyme actually *cured* on it's own, unless the other issues (Infection, viruses, etc.) are resolved.

Also - from what I remember - usually an immune system that is beat up is what allows the body to almost invite LD to stick around a bit.

IMHO - Maybe you should see what you can do to help strengthen your immune system so that it can do battle with the LD????

Unfortunately, I have neither gone through enough tx, nor will my brain work well enough for me to understand tx's to be of any help on what to take or to do - Other than detoxing - which is a must(!!) as by the time someone starts to have significant issues with TBI's, our systems are VERY over-loaded with toxins.

I wish you success!!!
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.
