They say studies show that long term abx has no benefit.

There is strong evidence* which shows prolonged (more than four weeks) treatment with antibiotics does not improve symptoms of this ``post-Lyme syndrome.'' Prolonged parenteral (not taken by mouth) antibiotic use can lead to severe diarrhea, blood stream infections, blood clots, and other serious side effects; therefore, it is not recommended for longer than four weeks.

They are so crazy what kind of studies did they do and on who? not one of us that's for sure.

The studies are missing what 99% of people have (co-infections) and therefore are worthless.

Also, many of the so-called studies UNDER medicate....they don't use a theraputic dose.

This was told to me by a former ILADS president.
