I know LLMD's are still prescribing Doxy for new tick bites...but if you already have chronic lyme (are you in remission...or still treating?)...not sure.
I do know someone (a teenager) who was treated with zithro for a recent bite + symptoms.
It worked for him...but that was only about 6 months ago....time will tell.
He also did short-term - I think it was 6 days....Which for him (because he had symptoms) was not long enough. I'm hoping that because zithro has a long half-life that he will be okay long-term. I tried to gently tell his mother it wasn't enough.
If I were you, I would try and get more....one month is recommended for a tick bite...no symptoms.
