So, how do I know if I need to discontinue or extend after 6 weeks?
Thank you SO much for your help. This advice is priceless!!!
Keep a close watch on him. If he has pain or any other symptoms - extra fussy, etc.
What you can also try - go to a walk-in clinic and ask for antibiotics.
Then go to another clinic and ask for antibiotics again...
That way you can get her started right away and you may get a few weeks from each Dr.
I will send you the name of a Lyme 'friendly' GP in Ontario (I think it's Toronto) who should be able to give him several weeks of abx. When you phone - make sure you say it has just recently occurred.
I am also giving you a name of a LLMD in Plattsburgh, NY who you can contact if necessary.
She has treated another child from Ontario.
There are LLND's in Ontario - but they only treat herbally. (Unless things have changed recently, the ND"s aren't able to prescribe abx)
I'm going to check my emails now and send you the names.
mpost: Unfortunately most Dr.'s won't recognize a bulls eye rash here in Canada as needing treatment for LD.
He will also need to be on probiotics...go to a health food store for those.
