Girlie- She is calling in a prescription for Zithromax to be taken for 2 months--not sure if this antibiotic is typically used for Bartonella or just Lyme. I have a lot of questions that have not been addressed by the doctor. If she didn't have time to speak with me when I went into the office for a scheduled appointment, I am not holding out much hope to speak with her over the phone. As of right now, I was told to schedule another appointment when I get close to finishing the Zithromax.
I'm not sure if she is on your list...I received her name from the Texas Lyme Association and another Lyme organization (can't remember the name), but I think I recall her being on the list you sent me as well. Just thought I would mention it in my previous post.
Zithromax is used - but in combination with another antibiotic.
Rifampin or Rifabutin.
I have heard of someone using Zithromax with a tetracycline for bart, but this person only had bart for months (less than a year) .
Generally macrolide and tetracycline aren't enough .
I just wouldn't want your infection to continue to worsen....
