I won't be taking additional antibiotics. My doctor's reasoning was due to how poorly I was doing on the combo I was on before. I could barely get out of bed. Normal day to day functions were out of the question. Work- forget it. I believe that is why the doc switched me over to the azithromycin to see how I would respond. It turned out that the test results later revealed I had some co-infections that would be better treated on the azithromycin anyway. So far, each month seems to be a bit better. The only concern was the developing rashes, but the explanation you gave makes sense. My worry was that I wasn't being given "enough" juice to kill the Lyme and co-infections off and that the rash was evidence of that.
Well azithromycin isn't usually enough to get at the coinfections after a 15 year old infection.
Both chronic bartonella and babesia require more than just azithromycin, doxy and Rocephin.
