I stumbled upon this site that has some solid research about the use of antibiotics long-term for rheumatic disease (and Lyme is listed!)
Going to point it out to my doc since he said he's always looking for info that supports this (for some people).

Roadback has been around for decades. The organization was started by a doc who noticed that his autoimmune patients improved and even recovered on antibiotics.
I think it all began with Minocycline for RA. The doc is Henry Scammel. I have his books.
The organization promotes the treatment of autoimmune conditions with abx. Many, many Roadback patients have tested positive for Lyme and co-infections.
I haven't been to the site in years. Lyme dx hit like a tsunami over there. The board is more accepting of Lyme than most chronic illness boards.
Unfortunately, Roadback has not made headway into mainstream medical thinking. Why change what works? (For docs and drug companies, not patients.)
But they have gathered lots of compelling and relevant info. I would definitely share it with your doc.
