I suddenly developed dry eyes after ramping up my treatment. I use Systane preservative-free drops. At first I needed it 4-5 times a day, now I usually only use it at night, sometimes in AM, and some days not at all. My LLMD was confident it was caused by my TBD’s and would go away with treatment.
I scratched my cornea because of rubbing them from dryness and that was an awful few days. I found a soft ice pack (peas or rice wrapped in a towel) on the edge of my eye helped with the itching.
As far as ABX, I’m on doxy, biaxin, and Mepron
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.
