After being on high dose doxycycline for many years, my LLMD prescribed me to take 600mg of Omnicef. What's the consensus on this drug? Any feedback is appreciated.

I’ve used Cefuroxime Axetil for some time, similar to the branded Ceftin. This is second generation, whereas Omnicef falls into the third - I’m not sure what the differences are there really.

You will mostly hear it is just for Lyme, since it ‘doesn’t go intracellular’, though I and others have had Bartonella herxes from these and significant progress. Though it could only be clearing in red blood cells and not beyond that and only be successful against certain strains.

I pair it with cats claw. I’m about 90% with periods in the day with no symptoms, though I started treatment relatively early to most. I’m on 500mg x 2 a day.

But overall these are very well tolerated drugs with no side effects I have personally noticed. People with issues with penicillin usually have issue with the first generation.

They have caused yeast overgrowth in some people, so just keep sugar and yeast foods to a minimum. The people that get it usually cheat.

Any questions feel free to ask.

I had Omnicef rotated into my protocols several times early in treatment years. Now I'm pulsing Ceftin and Bactrim DS.

I've heard that some LLMDs will Rx Omnicef following a course of IV Rocephin because it work very similar.

I have no opinion on the effectiveness of either one over the other after many many years of treatment.
