All I want to say is this:
Middle of last summer I took 3500 mg of Amox for 60 days. This LLMD did not expect for this to cure my Lyme in that time period. However, he did not accept insurance, and ordered tests and treatments not covered by my insurance. Being a responsible Dr, he did not allow me to refill my script w/o seeing him, but I could not go back.
Well, I felt sick during that 60 day period when I was taking Amox. Wondered if this was a herx or if my body was not responding to the Abx. Not immediately, but shortly after the abx was gone, I experienced a lot of relief of my worst symptoms. Thought I might be 'cured', tho not 100%.
My new LLMD (Infectious Disease Dr) prescibed high doses of Augmentin, based on my reaction (positive) to Amox. My understanding is that Augmentin is Amox + something that is less vulnerable to bacterial resistence, and/ or immunity.
That is about all I know except that I like Amox.
