I'll do a proper introductory post soon but I want to do a quick rushed one now to get answers.. !
I can't remember which antibiotic is for which infection..
I'm on IV's,
IV Ceftriaxone - I know this one is for Lyme itself
IV Azithromycin - ? babesia but unsure
IV metronidazole - I know its a cyst buster but which infection does it target??
Also wanted to ask which infection Cypro is for (I know its an awful, last resort drug)..
Thank you in advance!
I will try post an introduction soon - I'm only 22 but been sick since I was 7 and am in Aus where Lyme disease isn't a thing and we can get treatment, my doc has put his medical license on the line to help me because he's basically said I will die if we don't.
Hi - welcome!
Just a quick reply for now- Azithromycin is also for Lyme - and is sometimes paired with an antimalarial to treat Babs but it’s not effective on its own (for Babs)
Metronidazole is a Lyme cyst buster.
Cipro is for Bartonella
