I recently found this...interesting:

http://www.lymeneteurope.org/forum/view ... f=10&t=151

There is another story from years ago you may have seen of a guy who used long term high dose amoxi and biaxin and got well: http://www.geocities.com/HotSprings/Oas ... y-amox.txt

Isn't it amazing that some will switch around on abx, use cyst busters, etc and really we don't know if that works or just hanging in with one med for a VERY long time.

Wish we had more definitive answers.

As I understand it the Biaxin and Amoxy is a good combo because it kills two forms of the germ. (not that I remember which two forms LOL)

It worked well for me and I know you liked it too, Dana.

Thanks for the info.

Yes it is the most tolerable combo for me. I have come back to it over and over. I think Biaxin kills L-form and Amoxi in the blood.

Makes me wonder if any abx long term would work? Who knows really....hmmm..

yeah, it was my favorite combo too...it was just very doable.

you do have to wonder if we did really anything long term if that would work... this disease is just so crazy! But God is bigger than any silly illness we could ever come up with and He will show us the way :)

Thank u Dana 4 sharing that site.
It gives me HOPE cuz my son is now on Amoxy cuz it is the most tolerable 4 him. He was on it 1st for 2 months then Zith then Ceftin. He could not handle these 2 antibiotics.

I pray the Amoxy does well for him during school.
He has been having a lot of Seizures lately and now his NEW Neurologist has put him on Limictial (Generic form)
Can u believe the Lamictial is $484.00 a month but the generic is $3.50.........

He is still on Trileptal for now than hopefully 2 wean him off.

Lamictal is being used A LOT in lyme patients. I have been prescribed it, but haven't tried it. It was originally for bipolar disorder and/or depression, it is suppose to level out emotions and many are reporting it works well.

Krissy it might be a good replacement for anti-depressents, it seems well tolerated and liked by many lymies.

I pray the amoxi works well for your son. I have used the penicillins mostly through this - Bicillin and amoxi with Biaxin, I tolerate them best.

My LLMd said recently he thinks Bicillin is as effective as Rocephin without all the worry of gallbladder issues. I may return to the shots for awhile. Just sort of praying and waiting to see what God has to say.
