Thank you Girlie. I go to the doctor once a week for it so they just stick in the iv and put up the bag. So no need for pic line. I'm doing the best I can as far as diet I'm 90 percent vegan. I use herbs as well when I'm not at the doctors office. Been getting very depressed lately so I'm trying to hang on for the ride.

I guess I'm the only active member left with IV Rocephin experience.

I have never heard of getting IV once a week for Lyme. What are your questions?

Now that's a badass combo right there! Hats off.
How do you tolerate this extremely powerful abx combo?
Are all 3 of these abx administered intravenously? In what dosage and interval and for how long ? Are you pulsing?
What side effects have you experienced from these 3 abx?
And have any of your symptoms subsided?

I'm not doing all 3 at the same time, those are just ones I have done. Here is my current protocol:

-IV Clinda 2x/day 7 days/ week
-IV Zith 1x/day 5 days/ week
-Ivermectin 1x / week
-Dapsone 1x/day 7 days/ week
-Bee venom therapy 3x / week

Symptoms are currently reducing. Not gone yet. I am not really pulsing. I am giving myself 10 day breaks here and there, but for the most part it is consistent.

Side effects are manageable. You get in trouble when your doctor doesn't know how to prevent them. Ex: With rocephin take actigal to prevent gallstones. With dapsone take high doses of folate or folic acid to prevent anemia.
