Hello everyone!

I'm 2 and a half months into treatment but haven't experienced any herxes. I did a course of doxy at 400 mg but had no progress with that. I'm a week into Plaquenil 200mg, zithro 250mg, and IV Rocephin 1g.

I'm scared it's not working. And to be honest I'm not really detoxing... I know I know I should be doing that but I've been really lazy lately bc I'm just so tired all of the time.

Idk does this make any sense?

Herxing for me is more of the same , pain fatigue etc etc, try 2 grams ? Some dont herx till they add a cystbuster like bvt, flagle or tini?

Stefi, I was just going to post this same thing! I feel like nothing is happening. Two weeks into treatment - 400mg Doxy and 500mgCeftin. NOTHING.

I do start Dapsone next week - is that a cyst buster? I definitely herxed when my well meaning but not very informed GP put me on Flagyl - way too high a dose with no support. That's when all my symptoms came out. I almost feel like I should go back on Flagyl, but my LLMD has me doing the Dapsone thing next week. We'll see how it goes - she's the expert.

Okay, I take back not herxing. Day 4 on Ceftin and knee pain and my mind will not move forward.

Stinks because I have lots of work to do.
