I've heard that Minocycline and Tinidazole is a great combo, again this is word of mouth, anecdotal, backed by some scientific studies I've read. I was advised against taking more abx because my budget health care won't allow me to choose my own treatment plan (so I may have to seek other avenues). Few of the nurse practitioners at the free clinic understand, most don't, it's just they don't want to be liable if abx causes more problems. The consultations I've had with MDs have been interesting, usually a caveat about heavy antibiotic use and side effects and whether symptoms are caused by current bacterial load and cytokines or residual damage, both, or whether it is indeed "post-treatment" or "persistent" Lyme Disease syndrome, or MSIDS all of the above lol.
But anyway, back on topic: Tindamax is the brand name (likely better than the generic tinidazole I was given) that is often used in conjunction with Minocycline to maximal bactericidal effect. I've heard many good things about it, but I have not tried it yet.
