You're right, Girlie. We have to be brave
My doctor told me not to stop the antibiotic, but he has decreased the dose. He wants to add plaquenil, he says it will help to modulate my immune system and it is also effective against borrelia ...
I am currently taking minocycline (300mg, but down to 200), rif (600mg) and artemisinin. I had to stop ceftriaxone because it hurt my stomach and I had diarrhea ...
I am afraid of adding plaquenil ... but he says it is safe and that it will help me.
What I don't like about
the plaquenil is the long half - life - something like 50 hours.
So, after being on it for months...it will take a very long time after stopping for it to leave your system.
