Hi all:
My LLMD has told me he does not prescribe antifungals because of side-effects. I was under the impression that they were needed to deal with the cyst form of Lyme: have other doctors said this? Has anyone had success - oe bad side effects - with the antifungals?

Is flagyl an anti-fungal? I thought it attacks the amoeba form (cysts or whatever) of Lyme.

Anyways, garlic is also and anti fungal and cat's claw can accomplish the same thing as flagyl too.

I have been reading Buethner's book: 10 best Lyme Cures, and he says that the anti fungals are the best way to destroy the cysts. I am taking garlic - allicin as per Zhang - and Mepron & Zithromax for Lyme & Babesia. Would people be willing to share their experiences with Flagyl and the other drugs in that class?
