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."
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.
