Have you ever wondered why it is that we normally don't just get Flagyl or Tindamax?


Have you ever wanted either of the two, but could not just get it or get it long term?


After pressing hard for answers from a TOP LEVEL source, I finally have my answer.


The side effects from those drugs & especially neuropathy from Flagyl is high & in those given the drugs for months. It ends up not resolving much or anything for the majority.


This is the reason why the LLMD's are reserved to give it out as we would like them to & it seems like a wise decision.

I was told my my primary that after treating a patient long term with it for an infection the person developed foot drop. It never reversed itself for the patient.

I have severe muscle loss in both ankles and hands and wonder if the long term antibiotic treatment is the culprit..
They say sometimes the cure is worse than the disease.

I've taken tons of it. The last time I took it, I got really bad nerve pain.

No more for me.

Someone told me Homeopathic Thuja would detox one from the effects of Flagyl.

My llmd always told me to stop it immediately if I experienced any nerve/neuropathy type of pain.

I only had 5 months worth & wanted more and was willing to take it months on end. I too experienced shooting pains down my feet & bottom of my legs & I thought it was just Lyme symptoms.


Luckily those symptoms went away for me.

razzle, do you

know what Flagyl side effect they were using Thuja

for? I'm new to the Lyme scene and in my reading

about it, and it's co-infections, and have made

some mental notes where I see there are times

when Thuja could be indicated. Tender soles made

me think of Thuja. We would want the rest of

symptom picture to fit Thuja too.

Just a side note, when using homeopathy and there

is structural change in the body and weakness of

body, it is best to use low potencies like a 6c.

I took Tinidazole for months and never had a problem, pulsing. This is the only thing that will go after the cyst form, that and flagyl. When you take either of these you need to take a lot of b vitamins, that is critical to not getting nerve damage. Any good LLMD should have explained this. You need to take this along with other abx to go after all three forms of the borrelia.

I totally agree with KH111. Load up on magnesium too. Foot drop is a common symptom of Lyme Disease and co's, as well.

I was on Flagyl for almost 3 years with no breaks and no pulsing. I don't believe I had any nerve damage from the Flagyl. I always took a multivitamin that had B Complex in it, and extra B12 (injections).

Lookup,

The person who told me about Thuja did not go into details, just mentioned that they would give me Thuja at some point for Flagyl detoxing if I continued treatment from them (homeopathic medicine).

I was put on Thuja by a different homeopathic physician to treat numerous moles on my skin (combination of topical tincture on each mole, and taking the pellets sublingually - I don't remember what potencies were used). The remedy actually caused several of my moles to fade and disappear.

One can find out the indications for Thuja at http://abchomeopathy.com/r.php/Thuj

I've taken several homeopathics to repair the damage done by these drugs and they've done nothing.

Vitamins are also sometimes not enough when you are damaged permanently or to prevent damage.

I've been battling some the adverse drug reactions I've had (before and after Lyme).

It only takes one pill to cause some of these problems.

Look up askapatient.com and read some of the reviews before taking any meds.

Not everything is Lyme.

I was taking B vitamins and B12 at the time.. also magnesium, but perhaps not enough of it.

" This is the only thing that will go after the cyst form, that and flagyl. "


Yea, we hear that all the time. BUT what is one to do when the LLMD is not willing to provide it or prescribe it for a longer term than what you think you may need?

Alinia goes after cyst form too according to my LLMD. It's suppose to be better than tinidazole/tindamax.

Do you know what brand they recommend?


And what ever happened to GSE? Because it is so cheap, the same docs that sell expensive herbs do not carry this because they cannot make much on it? It is less than 10-$15.

Alinia is a drug and I don't think there's a generic. The company has a drug plan if your insurance doesn't cover it.
