My LLMD prescribed 1000 mg of regular Biaxin and 1000 mg of Biaxin ER at the same time. I tried that out for two months after IV Rocephin and got steadily worse. It also gave me the worst nausea of my life.

Yes it helped me very much! Was one of the best antibiotics I was on. I took Biaxin with several other antibiotics at the same time, which made it even better. Biaxin + Bicillin is really good, as is Biaxin + Bicillin + Ceftin, and the best of them for me was Biaxin +Bicillin +Ceftin + Flagyl. Alone it worked well too, but it's best to combine it with others to hit the Lyme and co-infections as hard as possible.

It it doesn't get absorbed -don't worry. What is worse if it doesn't reach concentration necessary to kill bacteria. This might lead to resistance build up. Resistance build not when there is too much drug in the blood (dead bacteria dont mutate)- it builds up when its not enough!

Seems like great combo.Probenecid is increases drugs concentration in blood (mostly those primarily excreted by kidneys). You could add rifampin to it and it would be almost complete
