I'm not sure if I posted information to you yet regarding finding an LLMD, so if I did, I apologize for posting this again. You truly need to find a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor(LLMD), otherwise, you will not get the right treatment and you won't be treated long enough. Two weeks of Doxy at 200mg a day is not enough. Please read what I posted below on antibiotic dosing.Dosage
Increasingly, clinicians recommend that certain drugs used for Lyme disease be given at higher daily doses: for example, 3,000–6,000 mg of amoxicillin, 300–400 mg doxycycline, and 500–600 mg of azithromycin. Some clinicians prescribe antibiotics using blood levels to guide higher doses. Close monitoring of complete blood counts and chemistries are also required with this approach.
