Recommending Tetracyclines (Doxy) To Treat Parkinson's Disease!

QUOTE- "Based on their excellent safety profiles in humans from their use for over 50 years as antibiotics, we propose the repurposing of tetracyclines, a multitarget antibiotic, to treat Parkinson's disease."

Head, meet wall.

Kind of frustrating how they neglect any possible infections being treated by the tetracyclines and state that it propably treats Parkinson’s by mediating the inflammation.

Hopefully, insurance will start to cover this!

It's so confusing! A well known Neurologist swears I have Parkinson's. LLMD says it's Lyme/Babesia. However, the Sinemet (el dopa) from the Neurologist is definitely helping my tremors. I'm struggling with Clindamycin/Plaquenal for Babesia after a year on Mepron/Zithromax failed. I was never able to endure Doxy but maybe I should have stuck it out. I've been sick for so long (30 yrs) that I'm not strong enough to handle much. I think that's why my Neurologist urges me to get off the tough meds. Any thoughts?

el dopa is a strong drug for Parkinson's. My brother, who has the disease, says after you try it to see if it works, try to go to a different drug for Parkinson's. El dopa is the last resort.

Do you have positive tests for Lyme and Babesia?

I, myself, only lasted a year on antibiotics. Frankly, they almost killed me.

Could you do a trial without antibiotics for awhile and see how you feel?

Will say some prayers that you get some direction as to what to do.
