My GP has prescribed me 400mg of doxycycline a day taken in 2 times, so 2 times 200mg every 12 hours for a month to fight the lyme in me. But I have read somewhere, and cant find it now, that it is best to kill lyme if I have it in one go to spike the blood levels. Does anyone know about this? What shall I do?
Thanks in advance for your help!
If I were you, I would dose 200 mg every 12 hours.
My LLMD (here in FL) started me two months ago on doxy 100mg 2 x per day. When I first started, I had just stopped a ten day augmentin run and felt horrible for the first two weeks or so into the doxy (so I know something was going on) - hence we are all different and what may or may not work for one, may or may not for another.
"My LLDr. went to a LD conference a month or two ago and was informed (? - don't know if that's the right word to use) that Doxy will send LD bacteria into the cyst form."
I have heard that it is once one stops the doxy, the cysts form and another antibiotic is used at that time to address/attack it.
