But I am reading on here that so many people start and stop antibiotics - and its to my understanding that's what causes the spirochetes to turn into cysts. I am having a hard time trying to figure out why so many people start and then stop. I started the doxy a month ago and will continue to take it until 2 months after my symptoms are gone, unless it doesn't do the job, then I have to do an add on antibiotic. But I think the key here is to not create a lapse in treatment, bc that's what makes the lyme hide and then come back when its ready. Am I right on this or no? I'm still new to all of this.
Starting and stopping treatment is a bad idea, unless you doctor has you on another abx and has you are "pulsing" another abx. I've not understood the reasoning behind pulsing completely, but it does seem to work for some people. BUT this is for a well educated LLMD to decide, not the patient.
