I'm trying to compile a list of all the abxs that are generally used for Lyme, and also add the antibiotics that are less popular but still have Lyme treatment potential.

Is there a list of antibiotics somewhere that could guide me?

I ask because my doctor and I are searching for a new abx to add to my current cocktail. I'm forced to rotate abxs every 6 months or so as it seems the bacteria develops resistance.

I need new treatment options. (I just turned down a an offer to take dapsone FYI)

I'm not sure about a list. I would actually love to see a completely compiled list of what antibiotic treats what, but every dr. seems to have a slightly different opinion.

Maybe it's time you change your approach. I know a lot of people here have gotten better using other things besides antibiotics.

I'm not sure, just a thought.

You could start with the Burrascano Guidelines, page 14 and following.

Then, you could look at the books written by other top lyme docs and add to your list.

For example, the lyme meds list starts on page 243 in "The Lyme Disease Solution."

Check Dr. H's book also.

You may want to add the doctor's name next to each med on your list. That would show you and others who it is who is saying the med will treat lyme. (Doctors will especially want this reference or even a footnote giving the name of document, author, page number, date, etc.)
