When treating Lyme there is really no stone hard cure or treatment for Lyme and its co-infections. And I am not a doctor but I do read the 2013 edition of LYME DISEASE and associated diseases "THE BASICS" . I am also a long time Lyme disease recoverer. There has been question of what can be used to treat Lyme and it's co-infections. I can only talk about what I read and what I have been prescribed and what has worked for me. Everybody is different and there are more mixes for different groups of infections. I could give you name of a drug to treat these infections but I think you would do better by going to www.lymepa.org and reading about treatment for the different infections. I will point you to the page for each infection and you can put that together or give it to your doctor. But remember it is also important to include alternative medical practices to help build your auto immune system up and keep your digestive system up and boost it to peak efficiency. Very important to be talking with a certified naturalist Nutritionist to help get this boost.
1. For Treatment of Lyme I made out good for a long treatment of Doxycycline for a number of years. But some do well with IV treatments or even shots of some kind. This is on page 9 of this booklet.
2. Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichiosis are usually treated with Doxycycline and was not an issue with my lyme problem and was not tested for because it would be eliminated by the lyme treatment. Page 13
3. Babesiosis is a different type of illness. This is caused by a Parasite and not a bacteria. It is a cousin too Malaria. My treatment was Coartum and Mepron. But there are other mixes to take into consideration. Page 14
4. Bartonella. (Old Name "Cat Scratch Fever") It takes a different line of antibiotics to treat Bartonella than it does for Lyme disease. Levaquin, azithromycin, Rifampin. Again different mixes. I am assumed to have Bartonella and taking a breather before dealing with that. Page 15
5. Rickettsia ( Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever) Regardless of what the name insinuates. It is more common in the southeast and eastern U.S than it is in the Rocky Mountains. This is usually handled at the same time as Lyme disease with Doxycycline.
There are other treatments out there that claim to help some sufferers without antibiotics. But I haven't been around them enough too talk about that. I am a big supporter of diet, detoxification, Chelation and alternative therapies like massage, acupuncture, and the like. Anything that brings the mind, body and soul back in line from a long and debilitating journey of misdiagnosing can help in the recovery.
