Yes, I did it for two months until my thrombocytes went down and then my LLMD switched Azithro to Amoxicillin. Now I am on Mino, Rifampin and Amoxi. I have tolerated both combinations very well (I was very scared!) and I have to acknowledge a significant improvement in a number of symptoms. Now I guess I am bit stuck but I think this is also normal. By the way, tomorrow I have an appointment with my doctor.

Hope it helps!

By the way, my thrombocytes are going back up again!

My LLMD said azithromycin and rifampin aren't good to take together because they interfere with each other.

I tried minocycline with rifampin. It seemed to be working for the lyme, but my bartonella symptoms didn't really improve. My stomach couldn't handle all the antibiotics, so I had to stop after a few months.

I also tried doxy and azithromycin, which was about the same. I think mino is better than doxy, but that's just my opinion.

I haven't heard Azithromycin and Riffy aren't good together.

I put them in the Drug Interaction Report and nothing showed up.

LLMD MR (has the TreatLyme online book) has them paired together.
