My neuro symptoms are about 40% better since starting levaquin. I have had no problems or bad reactions to it as I was worried I might. I am also on a few other abx but I am sure it is the levaquin that is making me feel better. So to all who haven't tried it give it a shot.

That's great Trish.

What other abx are you taking with it?

Hope it continues for you! [Smile]

Glad to hear, Leva helped me too. I was able to read a book again while on levaquin.

it all depends on the load

If you have a horrible load of bart...than you will suffer and mostly think that they have side efects...

I for instance...first time...stoped as i thought was killing me...than after I muscle tested it the second time...I felt great...when my load was lower...

I will give it a try again ...short periods is better than long terms...in the mean time DETOX your BODY

Dr J said to me.It cover LYME, MUCO and BART at the same time.

I'm glad to hear you're doing so much better! Levaquin did the same for me after a six week herx. I felt GREAT on it.

Yes.. levaquin was a great drug for me, even though it took 2 rounds of it to finally relieve my bart symptoms.

Levaquin gave me back my mental clarity, stopped my severe headaches and neuropathy.

Just watch those tendons.

I started LEVAQUIN again as I had a flare up of BART mostly in my spine and JAW.Dont ask ...My bart has been around me longer than LYME.

SO I when I got lyme became NEURO right away.Think about it. I just confirmed it and started LEVAQUIN again.I took the Levaquin and I began to be EMOTIONAL right away and my jaw stoped hurting right away.I am taking it easy and detoxing as I did provoke with EDTA some removal of metals and that made the part where BART was hanging TO FLARE UP.

Will see.I was told from my doctor to stop right away when my tendons start to hurt...Than you can go back again on it.


AGAIn if you feel as your tendons are hurting .JUST STOP it RIGHT AWAY.NO NEED TO CALL the doctor.Keep some HH capsules handy to replace the killing DRUG otherwise BART will GET NASTY!!!

Do not stop killing it just as soon as you feel that LEVAQUIN is Causing tendonitis...stop levaquin and continue on HH!!!

Thanks for all the replies everyone. Alv: I am also on malarone art doryx 400mg and plaquinil. I am thinking of doing bicillin shots as well. I am still having some pretty bad days but at least I am finally seeing some noticeable improvement.

Ok trish if you are on artmesin , than if you decide to take HH than take it away from artemisin.If you feel that LEVAQUIN with the rest is too much than jumo on HH capsules...and restart LEVAQUIN later.
