: Hi, To everyone happy new year I have a problem I hope someone can help me out. I've had lyme since 95. and I wasn't diagnosed till 97 same story we all know thought I was going nuts bad doctor the whole bit. finally found one who found out I had Lyme plus babesia plus erlichicosis. did the bicillian shots 6 months, did zithromax,quinine,suprax.larium,doxy,minocycline, and Mepron, biaxin and I'm sure I forgot a few antibiotics but we all know the course. my Iv tx the last time was 3 months rocphen and biaxin, 1 and 1/2 years ago helped with a few things. my doctor wants to do clarafan I think it's called pulse tx IV and maye try IV flagyl my question has anyone done IV tx more than once and does that drug sound familiar? I just dont know about this again I ot really sick the last time. please if someone could talk to me about this appreciate some feedback. jon/marlene@juno.com

Dear Marlene:

I am currently on IV treatment and did 3 weeks of the clarafan 3mg twice a day.
After 2 weeks, I had a tremondous fever and by my third week I had a severe rash.
My dr. says this is good because it shows that the iv treatment is working and is fighting
off the lyme disease. I was off the treatment for 2 weeks and just started a new treatment
today, it is 500 mg of Zithromax once a day IV, I have a picc line that is good for 6 months.
I hope this information helps you. Good Luck & God Bless! Regina
