So I recently asked for help with sugar cravings and I want to thank everyone that responded with answers. I am not making too much leeway with oral antibiotics and my quality of life is diminishing greatly. I want to try IV antibiotics. I've been put on IV rocephin twice in the past (not because of lyme but other issues) in a hospital and the die-off was incredible. It was a very pronounced effect from every sense. I'm wondering how do i find an LLMD near me (Olympia, WA) that is willing to help me with IV treatment?

I am legitimately so depressed that I dread waking up every day and if I don't get help I fear the worst sometimes. I know IV would help, I've felt it before. Thanks for any response and bless you all in our battles <3

You could have a phone consult with LLMD MR in Seattle and ask if he does IV abx.

I currently see one and he says he doesn't. What sites do I use to find LLMDs again? I'm sorry for asking!

If by MR that is the abbreviation of a specific doctor that is the doctor I currently see.


Yes those are his initials. So he never does IV... or he just doesn’t think you need it?

You could contact ILADS Physician Referral.

I can check my list for Washington state but I don’t think there are many llmd’s on my list.
Send me an email if you’re interested.

EDIT: I see that MR doesn’t do IV abx (in your post)

Hi M. Lowe. I am from the Seattle area. There are docs up here that do IV antibiotics, but it is rare and I am not sure how intricate their treatment plans are. Email me if you want some suggestions. I myself fly down to San Fran and see Dr. S. H. He is in the 2nd Under Our Skin documentary. So far I am happy with his treatment. IM Bicillin shots are good and IM rocephin as Blue pointed out work well too.

IV is only one piece of the puzzle though. Ask Dr. MR about treating persister cell lyme, babesia, and bartonella. I'm also doing bee venom. Look into that as well. Very good data behind the venom.
