Wow! I don't know. But if you don't get a good response, I would suggest sending a pm to TF, Brussels, Bluelyme and Lymetoo and ask them to look at your post. They all know a lot.

I am taking IV rocephin twice a day for 4 days followed by 2 days of IV flagyl. This is in addition to malarone and tetracycline, taken orally. I am not familiar with vibativ.

But chances are your doc is trying to make the most out of the use of your picc line. It helps your meds to cross the blood brain barrier.

Good luck to you!

Vibativ is a derivative of vancomycin; probably prescibed to get the benefit of vanco while limiting toxicity.

Three drugs; ceftriaxone plus vanco plus tinidazole(?)

It's a little exotic but it's essentially as safe as any other Lyme protocol.

Again, thank you. I will be doing the IV Roceph with the IV Vibativ and an oral for the cyst buster.
