I restarted biaxin last week and after 2 days I was having symptoms I hadn't had in weeks. felt crappy for about 3 days. felt just OK yesterday. today, after taking my am meds symptoms started up again.
I did restart my prilosec about 4-5 days before the biaxin for the doxy irritated esophagus. Did that interaction checker and found out that prilosec elevates the biaxin level, but it said no problems would be caused. However, those w/ lyme would have more of a bacteria kill, right? So, that may be the cause of the increase in symptoms.
I also was taking aloe vera juice 4 x day to heal the esophagus/stom (which worked wonderfully in 3 days!) Reading on this juice, its antibacterial, so maybe that was the cause of increase of symptoms.
Also am taking curcumin for inflammation/joint pain (which works wonderfully, also) but, understand it can cause die off??
Maybe I started biaxin at the right time in the spriochete's cycle for maximum bacteria killing? I never really figured out exactly when that is for me, i've only been treating since sept and symptoms have been quite random.
So, if anyone has any experience with any of these meds together, I'm wondering if you've had an increase in symptoms.
I have stopped my prilosec & continued with a small dose of the aloe vera juice, as it has many healthy properties, and would rather be on it than the prilosec.
Also, havn't been drinking the lemon water d/t the esohpagus/stom, and that really helped me to detox previously.
I was feeling "fine" for weeks...none of these neuro symptoms that I had in beginning...I'm still not as bad as beginning.
THANK YOU in advance :)
