Would 1000 mg 2X/day.........Total 2000/day be excessive?? Your opinions are appreciated

According to Dr. B's guidelines at http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/B_guidelines_12_17_08.pdf page 18, the recommended dose for adults is "1g q12h and adjust."

I am actually also taking 2000 a day and wondered the same thing (2tabs of 500 2 times a day). For the first couple of days I only took 1000 split up and then went up to 1500 and just in the last 2 days went up to the full 2000. In addition to Ceftin I am also on Flagyl and Rifampin.

I feel OK on that dosage so plan to stay on it until I am retested in a few weeks.

Sammi--what does 1g q12h mean??

I believe it means 1000 mg every twelve hours.
