Does anyone know of a cheap source for IV Doxycycline? My LLMD wants me to switch, but I am afraid the cost will be too much.
thanks!

Check InfuserveAmerica. I'm not sure what their prices would be, but they are usually the least expensive.

When I priced IV Doxycycline, it was going to be VERY, VERY expensive. May not be the case in your situation. I have had good results on IV AZITHROMYOCIN, and have been able to pulse it 1 x every other day (because it's half life is 48 hours, it lasts a LONG time in the body). I also pulse Tindamax 2 weeks on/2 off (and take Samento/banderol for cystbusting when I'm off the Tindamax). After 5/6 months of this, I am 95 percent symptom free, I hope nearly well. Good luck in your tx.

thank you LymeLogged and cht girl. My doctor said it would be more expensive than Rocephin, but did not know HOW much more. I will look into Azithromyocin.

Hey 4truth,

What dosage are u going on? I will start IV
Doxy also next week.

You may be able to get it with a perscription a lot cheaper from a pharmacy. I you have coverage.

Unfortunately, I do not have insurance.

I found at drugsdepot they have a lot of products, but I cannot tell which one I really need. It is so confusing. I will probably need to call my LLMD and see the exact product name and such. I had looked into a TON of outlets when I was researching Rocephin, but ultimately Infuserve was WAY cheaper to get my saline bags already infused. So I just got everything from them. And there are no manufacturer programs with Rocephin to help, but maybe there is with Doxy, or even Azithro.

I wonder, does Azithromycin also hit Bart and other red blood cell viruses and such? I know my doctor really wants the crossover, as he thinks my Bart is coming back out to play.

I almost hate to post this because my memory isn't the best. But I think I remember that IV Rocephin from Infusurve is a little less than a grand per month including all supplies.

I believe IV Doxy is about 4 times that.

Holy cow! I know there is no way that I can afford that!! I hate this disease, and I hate our medical system. If I were among the wealthy few, I could get the medicine I need. But because I am not, I must stay sick?!

Searching, Don't take my word for it. Give Infuserve a call when you can. They can prepare a quote for you. Super nice people. I used to get my IV Glutathion from them.

I now get LDN, Methylcobolamin, and a DMSO pain cream from them. Best prices I've found.

No, I don't work for them or have any financial interests.

I have been getting my rocephin from them. They are super nice, although my orders have gotten messed up 75% of the time. But the price cannot be beat, so I figure its a fair trade. I will call them monday
