Does anyone have any encouraging information about the effectiveness of Tindamax? I'm on it 2 days out of the week (for this replace) and hoping it causes considerable die-off.

Another question, this week I've had incredible die off from oregano oil - I've heard its really hard on the stomach so I tried putting some drops on my feet last night and it didn't seem to help at all.

Also, what helps you with herxing especially the anxiety kind?

TIA-

I’ve been on Tinidazole a couple times for cyst busting

I couldn’t tell if it did anything .


Anxiety - for me it’s treatment the infection.

Have you tried Jernigan’s Neuro antitox or Nutramedix Pinella?

oregano oil is many times more powerful than tindamax. tindamax is some sort of legend here. it's said to be fantastic. yet unless you are on 2-3gr a day i dont think it works.

i've been on it for months. 1.5gr a day. it's not enough. it is true it penetrates tissue really well. but it's not as good as ppl think.

even sapi's work (which is one of the papers quoted by all LLMDs giving tindamax to lymies) shows tindamax has very hi MIC against BB. I know a lady that was a doctor had lyme and got cured with just tindamax but she was taking crazy doses 3gr a day... i am afraid to take such doses.

tinidazole is a prodrug in category nitromidazoles (with metronidazole), it works even on perister cells because it becomes active only within bacteria cell, and even if they are semi-dormant (persisters). but again, very hi MIC....

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.

I tried a combination of Tinidazole and a few other antibiotics that I cannot recall for about one year. I would take the tinidazole 2 consecutive days in a row and I remember herxing and feeling like crap for those two to three days. Although it wasn't pleasant, it definitely was killing something. My doctor decided to take me off of it as he felt that the tinidazole should have killed most of the persisters after a year.
