My oral combination treatment of amoxi, azithro and tini doesnt seem to be cutting it so my LLMD has recommended 1 month of IV Ceftriaxone, 2g/ day. I'm not overly keen on this suggestion, partly because I understand there are gall bladder issues associated with Ceft and partly because I think we should be having a go at the Bart first, which we know I have, and which i havent been treated for yet. I would prefer a lyme/bart oral combo like azithro and rifampin. But hey thats just me and what do I know!
Anyone have any experience with IV Ceft - does it work against Bart as well?
Anyone have any thoughts about non responsive lyme as a consequence of unresolved coinfections?
Ta v. much,
