Sorry for hijacking your thread but is it possible to combine I.V. rocephine 2g (3rd generation cephalosporin) with rifampicin? Possibly I.V. rifampicin?
And would that be just as effective for treating Lyme + bartonella as azithromycin + rifampicin?
Thanks for the info.
I haven't actually heard of IV Rifampin being used.
Rocephin and Clindamycin are the ones I've seen mentioned.
doing IV Rocephin plus oral Rifampin or Rifabutin?
