Ehrlichiosis iGg and meds
Posted 25 April 2012 - 04:33 PM
DD4 has sudden onset PANDAS back in October. We got into see Dr. B 6 weeks later in CT in December.
Her IgG showed ehrlichiosis. She also showed exposure to Rocky mountain spotted fever and typhus. We have since started seeing an LLMD. I just goit her results that RMSF and typhus were no longer detected. Her IgG for Ehrlichiosis has remained the same.
He said keep giving her the same medicines: Augmentin 600mg, 1 teaspoon 2x per day, Azithromycin, 1 teaspoon 1x per day, and A-Bart for suspected bartonella. We are working slow on that as she was dizzy after the second day. So, she is taking one drop every three days for 2 weeks.
Anyway, we did see Dr. B today for her 4th followup appointment. He asked how DD was. I said 90-95%. He tald me to discintinue the Azithromycin.
But I will talk to our LLMD first... I would think that if the numbers haven't changed, I should keep the dosage the same, yes?

Yes, I'd keep the dosage the same until the LLMD says differently.
That's what I was thinking. Maybe get the script from the LLMD because I'm betting Dr. B will not refill it if you need it since he said to discontinue.

She has been on the azithromycin since the beginning on January, so 3 1/2 months.
Both said to call back if symptoms reappear and either will refill the azithromycin. She is currently still on Augmentin 600mg 2x per day and the A-bart.
I hope no symptoms return. But then again, she never really had the symptoms of Ehrlichiosis or RMSF...And if not I guess next step would be to retest her titers again in May with LLMD and again with Dr. B in February.
