If you do treatment with antibiotic you wil at some point need Flagyl or some form of treatment for the cysted form of Lyme. Many docs pulse it in- using it say on the weekends or for a week at a time.
Grew up on Cape Cod with Lyme... (TB aged 12 so did 2 yrs antibiotics as a kid). Weak immune system lifelong-self diagnosed Lyme 2003. Treated successfully with Cowden herbs until rebit 2007. Babs, Bart and Lyme treatments- currently using IV Clindamycin/Azithromycin and oral Mepron, Bactrim and Flagy- pulsed therapy.

Yes, you will definitely need Flagyl or something else that breaks open the cyst form.
