    Experiences with ceftin?

    Hello!

    I was recently diagnosed with Lyme. My family doesn't have much money right now so we are trying to avoid going to an LLMD until I'm 100% I need one, so we are going to wait a few months. Because of that, I'm trying to get advice on here before I consult with one. I am currently only on 500 mg 2 x daily of ceftin because I am allergic to penicillin and I am a lifeguard for the summer, so for the next 2 months I won't be able to be on doxy. I've been on it for 2 weeks, and have 3 more weeks filled already. I haven't had any change in symptoms and no obvious herxing. I'm worried it isn't working or it isn't a high enough dosage. If the dosage is too low, will it still prevent more symptoms from showing up or should I push to get something else soon?
    Has anyone been diagnosed with lyme and only been on ceftin 500 msg x 2 a day? I'm nervous about this. Thanks !

    If you've been diagnosed with Lyme I would get to an LLMD ASAP! If lyme is caught and treated early (within the first month) the chances of recovering are excellent. Not so, the longer you wait! You mentioned you may push to get something else from your doc. How will you know what to ask for? This is why an LLMD is needed. You may also have co-infections that need to be addressed separately. Lyme is serious and difficult to treat. There are various stages of the infection that require different types of abx. Is your current doc. knowledgeable of this? This is why you need the lyme specialist.

    Another thing you could consider is to do salt/C along with the abx you are using. This would definitely hit the critters while you garner the funds for the LLMD. If interested, you could research or buy the book The salt/C protocol for Lyme infection by M. Fett. Here you would also find excellent detox suggestions and such. You might also read the sticky at the top of this board titled "Lyme Newbies".

    Best,

    Jen
