ullgghh I honestly don't know much about Ivermectin and I am very new to all of this tick borne illness business, but I remember reading about how bad it was to give to my dog years ago so Im sure its a very hefty drug.
With that being said, I would definitely just call the doc and ask them!
I completely understand the feeling of going to an appointment totally drained and not feeling like you got enough out of it because of it.
I went to the ER last night for rapidly worsening chest pains and shortness of breath.
They did a bunch of stuff that came back normal and the doc said that he thought I might have Lupus, then he said if it was still related to Lyme I would have a bunch of symptoms he started mentioning.
The thing is I do have all of the Lyme symptoms, I honestly can't remember if I mentioned them while there... I certainly don't recall being asked if I was experiencing specific symptoms.
The whole thing was a waste but I honestly didn't have the energy to even try to argue.
A good thing that came of it was they ran bloodwork for all co-infections, which my Dr told me I would need to go to a specialist for. Hope that the hospitals tests are as accurate as LLMD because it will save tons of money.
anyway, I am going off on a tangent...Please call the Dr. They will be able to tell you what you need to know
