    Omnicef plus tetracycline

    I'm taking Omnicef plus Tetracycline: Omnicef 300mg 2x/day,plus Tetracycline 750mg 2x/day. I've taken this dose twice, and so far, based on how my head feels, I'd rate it excellent. I'm self-medicating! I have no idea if it's dangerous! I thought it might not work, because I know people are not supposed to combine Penicillin and Tetracycline because they block each other. I keep searching, but can't find any mention on the Net of people who combine Omnicef plus Tetracycline. Does anyone know anything about this combination?
    I'm also taking Andrographis, Polygonum, Teasel root extract, 7-mushroom powder, Niacin 200mg 3x/day, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, lactoferrin, betaglucan, Rhodiola, Alpha-lipoic acid, etc., etc.

    Hi purplefoxglove, welcome to the board!

    How long have you been sick? Have you ever been tested for Lyme disease? Below is a Lyme symptom list. You can have any combination of symptoms.

    Unexplained fevers, sweats, chills, or flushing
    Unexplained weight change--loss or gain
    Fatigue, tiredness, poor stamina
    Unexplained hair loss
    Swollen glands
    Sore throat
    Testicular pain/pelvic pain
    Unexplained menstrual irregularity
    Unexplained milk production: breast pain
    Irritable bladder or bladder dysfunction
    Sexual dysfunction or loss of libido
    Upset stomach
    Change in bowel function-constipation, diarrhea
    Chest pain or rib soreness
    Shortness of breath, cough
    Heart palpitations, pulse skips, heart block
    Any history of a heart murmur or valve prolapse?
    Joint pain or swelling
    Stiffness of the joints, neck, or back
    Muscle pain or cramps
    Twitching of the face or other muscles
    Neck creeks and cracks, neck stiffness, neck pain
    Tingling, numbness, burning or stabbing sensations, shooting pains
    Facial paralysis (Bell's Palsy)
    Eyes/Vision: double, blurry, increased floaters, light sensitivity
    Ears/Hearing: buzzing, ringing, ear pain, sound sensitivity
    lncreased motion sickness, vertigo, poor balance
    Lightheadedness, wooziness
    Confusion, difficulty in thinking
    Difficulty with concentration, reading
    Forgetfulness, poor short term memory
    Disorientation: getting lost, going to wrong places
    Difficulty with speech or writing
    Mood swings, irritability, depression
    Disturbed sleep-too much, too little, early awakening
    Exaggerated symptoms or worse hangover from alcohol

    When Lyme disease is a possibility, it is very important to see a knowledge-able doctor. Many doctors do not understand Lyme and treat with outdated protocols. No test is completely reliable, and results can vary by lab.

    Besides Lyme, ticks can also transmit several co-infections including Babesiosis, two types of Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. It is estimated that 60% of people who have Lyme are co-infected. It may affect treatment choice and progress. It is important to be tested for these by a Lyme reputable lab such as IgeneX in Palo Alto, CA. Have you been tested for these?

    I definitely do not recommend self-treating. This can be very dangerous. I know it can be expensive to get help, but your health is the most important thing. You need to see a doctor who can test you for the co-infections and properly monitor your treatment.

    If you would like a doctor recommendation, let us know.

    It is also important to learn as much as possible. I recommend reading Dr. Joseph Burrascano's 2005 Diagnostic Hints and Treatment Guidelines For Lyme and Other Tick Borne Illnesses. He is one of the top Lyme doctors in the country, and many Lyme doctors follow his protocols. I also recommend the book "Everything You Need To Know About Lyme Disease (2nd edition)" by Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner.
