hello,

after doxy X 200, just one take per day during 3 weeks without effect... cry a little worse than before treatment... I go on with rocephin 1g injected intravenously during 3 weeks. I take it since 3 days without any results.
my weight is: 55 kg . Like the other treatment by doxy, I ask myself : "is this dosage enough ?"

thanks a lot !
Mary

With this dosage you'll only feel worse... it's what happened with me at first of treatment...

100mg doxy x2 day and my situation become worse... then 1gr of ceftriaxone and much worse than before...

so low doses of antibiotics that do not reach a bactericidal level in the cns will only make the situation worse ... At first I was reluctant to think so ... but now I have noticed that the herx is more severe (in case of lyme) , when low doses of antibiotics are administered ... the spirochetes are very motile and will migrate to areas of your body where the concentration of antibiotic is lower and probably only you feel worse ... and more neuronal damage ...

mary - you should be dosing with 200 mg twice daily of doxy.

Also, 3 days of IV rocephin isn't long enough to determine if it is...or isn't working.


Improvements can take weeks to months.

hello,

thanks for your responses...but what to do ? perhaps give a phone call to my doctor to explain the dosage is not enough... it is annoying..
