I am on abx for an UTI...should I wait until I am done to get tested for Lyme?

I think supposed or should be off for 10 days.

Someone mentioned to me that it might be good to test while on abx, that way the Lyme is active and fighting.
I guess it could go either way. Maybe I will call the Dr. at Igenex and ask what he recommends.
Thanks for your help!

Well im not really sure but I do know I was concerned a couple weeks ago when I got my Lyme test because I had taken a few pills about 5 days prior to my western blot and my LLMD said that was fine and wouldnt affect it.

I spoke directly to Igenex about this and they said the antibiotics would not have an impact on antibody testing (i.e. ELISA, Western blot) but does for PCR testing.
