Thanks everyone for your advice.
The reason I want to do a different med than doxy is I am stock piling my leftovers - and I only have about
10 days of doxy - starting at 200 mg daily for a few days and then 400 mg after.
I have lots of biaxin due to needing breaks from it since I've been on it.
If I have to take hubby to a LLND to have a consult and get a presc for a challenge of Doxy - well - it may not happen. My best chance of him doing the challenge is to get him on a bad day and have him start immediately.
But, I think I will have him tested thru Igenex without the challenge then.
I have called my LLND's receptionist and asked if the Dr would sign a lab req for our local lab to do a draw and send to Igenex. She hasn't gotten back to me yet. To go there is a couple hours drive, hour and half ferry, another hour and half drive. And we wouldn't get an appt for a couple months.
Too much hassle for my hubby...lol
