I have tried doxy, ceftin, zith, biaxin plus planquenel, quinine plus clarithromycin, flagyl with no results no herxes. After my current biaxin/plaquenel round is almost over with no result. Next is rifampin im hoping it will do something. If not should I try ketek or rox, or roceftin?

Are you doing this on your own? Maybe you should see an LLMD.
You might not be taking the corrects amounts or using them in the right combinations or even treating the right infections.

Ketek is a macrolide that is very effective against lyme but hard on the liver. You must be tested regularly while on it.

You can only buy roxy from overseas. It is said to cross the BBB.
Rifampin is for bartonella. I believe it is taken with a macrolide.
Do you have bart symptoms.

Sounds like you are throwing everything in the kitchen at whatever it is you have, hoping that something will stick. You need expert advice or you will be wasting your time, building resistance and getting no where.

Yeah I have a LLMD, he started me with certain antibiotics, and then moving on to certain other combinations. My only symptoms are essentially fibromyalgia, muscle twitches, and some fatigue. I remember getting a rash when I was like 10 years old, never had any symptoms. I am now 21. Been dealing with the aches for about a year and a half or so. Had a positive lyme test from IGeneX but never had any other tests.
