I'm taking 2000mg a day. I feel more fatigue since replacing doxy w/ the ceftin (also on flagyl and rifampin) but have not had headaches or insomnia.

I am on Ceftin, also 2 grams a day. I was on a lower dose, and upped it to meed Dr. B's protocol.

Started having flu-like symptoms, inflammation and achy joints with Ceftin, but they have resolved after treating for a few months. I used to start feeling lousy at about 4:30 every day - think it was neurotoxins. Started to detox more, took COQ10 and tumeric for inflammation and added more binders, and it resolved.

Dr. B. and Pam did get better treating with Ceftin per Cure Unknown.

Definitely a herx reaction. I get the headaches and constant waking up and dreamy sleeping when I switch meds or restart meds. Very common herx symptoms.

LLMD standard dose of Ceftin is 1000mg twice a day. Standard dose is half that.

Burascanno used to often have patients take 3000mg per day... never asked it it was 1000mg tid or 1500mg bid.

When I tried 1000mg three times a day, I herxed severely and nausea was brutal. I had to scale it back as I couldn't work and it was too expensive.

I just restarted Ceftin after having some joint pain and fatigue come back- and I also got some anxiety/weird dreams for the first few days of it. I've been pretty symptom-free so it's weird to get herx effects, but who knows.
