 My LLMD diagnosed me as having lyme after he got my test back from Igenex. I know I tseted positive on three bands which included 41. I know this is not a complete explanation of the tests, but that is all I understood. There is a little confusion over what he has prescribed. He has prescribed amoxycillin at 1 gram twice a day. It seems like he may have wanted me to take azithromysin, but changes his mind because of the cost. folks on another board have suggested amoxy should be taken three timews a day and that probenicid should be added. Also I have been smoking the last 6 weeks and it has really messed up my digestion and overall health. Also I have eaten very poorly for many months. I have been kind been looking for the diagnosis as a point to turn around my health habits around. So do people here think I should work on getting healthy before starting abx?

My LLMD evaluates my progress at each monthly visit and changes up my medications as needed. I would not delay in starting your medication and I recommend following your doctor's advise if you want to get better. You can work on improving you health habits while being treated. I started out on 3 grams of amox per day with 250MG of Zithro. After a few months I felt so sick on it, he switched me over to Ceftin at 1 gram per day. Still not feeling very well but much better than before. Good luck with your treatment.
