My last LLMD, which I left for his incompetence (he constantly insisted on leaving the antibiotics, for fear of losing his license and take only three weeds, cumanda, bandero and samento ... with which I didn't notice anything) He said that if i had been taking rifampicin alone for quite some time, and this had created resistance to Bart, then by putting another antibiotic, this would not break the resistance of rifampin to Bart ... Is that true?

Is this really so complicated? Or are some of them interested in making it complicated so that we have the feeling that if we are not under their orders, we will never be cured?

Now I don't have any LLMD and I know that i need one because i have questions and i need answers but i meet a lot of charlatans in my country... the cure lyme with magnetic therapy... oh really... or abx don't work, you have to eat healty and it's enough... another "llmd" offers me acupunture to kill lyme.... it's ridicolous... if burrascano or other serious llmd hear it....

your old LLMD needs to be left behind, way behind. enough said.

bugs can develop resistance especially if you start and stop treatment. this happened to me with babesia i treated for most of 2015 then stopped for a year and then went back to it in 2017. it took me much longer to finally clear it because the belief is it grew more resistant from not ever fully eradicating it in 2015.

this is from Dr. J in DC who is one of the best out there.

so if you are going back on rifampin you should combine it with another abx and it very well may take longer due to stopping. my favorite combo with rifampin/rifabutin is bactrim. you can also add minocycline at some point as well. bactrim is already 2 abx and hits all 3 B's so its a good one if you can tolerate sulfa drugs.

the problem is that when I was with this llmd I stopped the 3 antibiotics many times; mino, rifampim, ceftriaxone and even malarone.

He would tell me 3 weeks and then rest 3, and then another 3 .... things without logic ... then due to self-fear and confusion I will also stop it twice more ... A festival ...

When you say you did the 3 weeks on, 3 weeks off...etc. were you always only taking one antibiotic?

or Mino plus rifampin....etc.

So for a few weeks only one at a time? Are you on two now?

Remind me - what country are you in? And...have you tried to get a LLMD?

If you're herxing...then I would assume that it's not resistant to the abx.
