    Lyme combination azithromycin doxycycline hydroxychloroquine

    I know minocycline is an antibiotic related to doxycycline, yet I looked plaquenil up and found that it is a DMARD, used to treat malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Plaquenil can change the intracellular PH and make antibiotics more effective. It works especially well with macrolide antibiotics. I wasn’t reacting well on the combination (too hard on my digestive system, severe herxing - but I have to add that I don't know which abx caused the problems), but most of my dr’s patients react very well. I found no connection to treating Lyme except that when used in combination with minocycline is affective at treating Lyme arthritis, and is fools insurance companies into thinking arthritis is exactly what is being treated. It's very common for LLMD's to use Plaquenil in all kinds of protocols. It can cause eye problems (I didn’t have them, but I had to stop this combination after 6 weeks).

    Azithromycin gel fails to prevent Lyme disease In a recent study conducted in Germany and Austria, researchers applied a 10% azithromycin gel to the site of a tick bite for 3 days. The trial was stopped early after it failed to prove that the gel worked in preventing Lyme disease LD for the 995 subjects. The first-line standard of care treatment for adults with Lyme disease is doxycycline, a tetracycline antibiotic. Other antibiotics that have activity against borrelia include the penicillin-like antibiotic, amoxicillin, and the cephalosporin, Ceftin. The mainstay of treatment is with oral pill antibiotics. Azithromycin Zithromax 500 mg 1 pill 1 time a day, hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil 200 mg 1 pill 2 times a day, and metronidazole Flagyl 500 mg 1 pill 2 or 3 times a day. Key Points Since azithromycin is not as effective as other macrolides like clarithromycin, hydroxychloroquine is used to increase the effectiveness.

    We should always watch for side effects that can be damaging!! Yet, of the millions of symptoms Lyme has caused me, arthritis isn't one. My pharmacist (and the dr also afterwards) advised me to get my eyes checked before starting treatment, so that my dr would know for sure where the damage comes from, if I had any showing up.

  2. Is plaquenil a diuretic
  3. Joint pain after stopping plaquenil
  4. I have to say that the best I feel is on Plaquenil and doxycycline, with steroids occasionally. I have a flare. I wish that I could find one Dr that would treat me the same as a doctor in Gainesville Florida treated me. so that I could continue to feel better. Plaquenil alone does at first give you night terrors and insomnia.

    Doxycycline and rifampin work well together for the treatment of Lyme and Bartonella, for instance, while Zithromax and Mepron are frequently used for Babesia. Other medications that I use less frequently include amoxicillin and Alinia nitazoxanide. Lyme disease is the most commonly reported vector-borne disease in the United States. Although most patients respond well to antibiotic treatment, 10-20% suffer chronic symptoms of carditis, arthritis, and neurological impairment months after treatment. The cause of these symptoms is still undetermined, but there are many theories Doxycycline, amoxicillin, or cefuroxime for 14-21 days. Doxycycline, amoxicillin, or cefuroxime for 28-42 days or azithromycin for at least 21 days “Persisting symptoms of Lyme disease” No antibiotic therapy. Multiple agents individually or in combination are mentioned without specific doses or duration recommended
