Just spoke with dr.c and he said he thinks it's just lyme we are going after now that is why we are only using one antibiotics. It must be working because I feel worse now then in months. He also made something clear to me. It is not the amount of time you are in lyme treatment to gauge full remission. He said that because I have many times had days of 95-100% days that in most cases people who have those days will fully recover eventually. Just food for thought
Yes, definitely we don't gauge the success of treatment with amount of time but we do know that a short amount of time treating will not result in remission for chronic cases.
I am surprised that he is only prescribing one antibiotic - even if he's "just " going after Lyme.
When I was first treating, my combos were only Lyme: Amoxy plus biaxin, then Ceftin plus biaxin.
The different classes of antibiotics work differently on the bacteria...plus it helps prevent resistance to the abx.
I hope this does work for you Bowdren and you get to symptom free.
Keep us posted.
