hey folks,

i made some bartonellatreatment already.. but like i saw in my lymebook, i only did 1 months of levaquin and 2 months of rifampicin, i think it was a little bit too short i think.


so... how long did u treat bartonella until you get rid off it and symptoms like brain fog???

can bartonella cause memory loss too?? what about raccoon eyes??? i have very dark eyes since i got sick..

thanks for that information, i know that some people have bad side effects on it, but they are 1 of 100000.. like i said i already took fluorchinolones 2 times, 1 time factive 1 time levaquine, had no problems with it, only dizzy.

My doc said that you had to continue rifampin for some time after symptoms went away because they could come back.

I've been treating for 3 months w/ Cipro, which is same family but weaker. I take twice the dosage of what the Levaquin would be, So I think it's comparable. I have had excellent strides. My doc wanted to stop, but I requested more since I don't trust the good feeling. I would also like to know what a solid time frame is for Lev/ Cipro treatment. I just feel like 3 months is not really long enough

When I started it the LLMD told me three to four months but I could only last five weeks before getting tendonitis.

I've been told anywhere from 3 to 6 months....I would always opt for the longer treatment if possible....

I made good progress with 4 weeks of levaquin before tendonitis kicked in. If you can tolerate it for 2-3 months, you'll be golden (maybe)...

It's something that I may have to try again (or cipro or factive even).
