Welp, I saw my LLND today for a one month follow up. I've been on doxy 200mg bid, artemesinin, and a-bab for a month now.
I'm having a real hard time with even 1/2 drop a day of the a-Bab so he took me off of that. I'm herxing bad on it every day and it's not letting up.
He wants to give abx a month long rest and possibly revisit with rifampin in a month. He doesn't want to drive it into cyst form. Does that sound logical? He also suggested coffee enemas for detox ........ Yikes!
I'll continue the artemesinin and he added a formula they sell at the clinic called "KW Botanicals Lyme Formula"
Anybody ever heard of it? KW's website isn't at all useful but this was all I could find about
I'm feeling so crappy from the a-Bab, I've gotta take a rest from the herbs a few days before I try something else. Feel like I've got ptsd from the a-Bab. I've got the buhner books now and am trying to figure out where to start with that program. Are you buhner folks just doing it on your own without llmd guidance?
My pcp finally made a referral to a rheumatologist who treats tbd's. Do they tend to follow idsa guidelines? I'd sure like to have insurance cover this much of a pipe dream as it seems to be.
