“ I found 200 mg per day minocycline sufficient. I didn't try doxy, and I don't know if the dosing is exactly equivalent, but 400 mg might be more than necessary.“
400 mg doxy daily is the appropriate dose for Lyme.
200 mg mino daily is appropriate dose for Lyme.
Have you used mino Girlie? I think I read an old post from you saying it turned your teeth grey!
It seems to hit people quite hard in the brain from what I've read. I'm a little scared of doing that.
Yup - I have used mino and am still using it now that I’m on the maintenance protocol. I take mino 3 days a month.
I took it daily in 2015 and part of 2016 with my previous LLND
Then back on it in Feb 2018 - but only taking it 6 days per month at the most.
Yes it turned my teeth a greyish colour - not too bad tho.
Unfortunately it’s not like the doxy staining where you can have it removed at the dentist... the mino seems to stain under the enamel - I read it can also stain the thyroid and bones.
It appears to be diminishing now that I’m only on it a few days a month.
Yes it hits the brain hard - when I first went on it, I was dizzy and off-balance.
That’s why it’s so effective for brain stuff...penetrates blood brain barrier good... one of the best.
