For the past year, we have been treating my 10 yr old daughter with just herbs (Beyond Balance products: Cognease Detox, Cyflacalm, MC-BB-2, MC-BAR-1, and MC-BFM-P) to treat lyme. I saw a big improvement in her neuro symptoms (7/10 in her overall behavior compared to the prior years). Her doctor convinced me to switch to antibiotics in order to fully "tackle the lyme" after her most recent lyme urine test. We started one month ago with 300 mg Cefdinir/daily and pulse 250 mg Flagyl on Friday/Saturday/Sunday for cyst busting. We try to detox with aka seltzer gold, lots of lemon water, and epsom salt baths. The first twelve days, my daughter severely herxed and could hardly hold a conversation, sit down, sleep, or eat. Things have *slightly* gotten better, but she still has bad anxiety, cries easily, low appetite, poor focus, and a general feeling of restlessness. We're supposed to start the 3rd antibiotic next week (Azith), but I know her body can't handle it just yet. I'm also still giving her all of the Beyond Balance herbs. So, how long in your antibiotic lyme treatment did you see your child's symptoms improve? I am at the emotional point where I want to just drop the antibiotics and go back to herbs. Or, maybe try a different herbal protocol. So, I'm looking for any guidance/success stories in sticking with antibiotic treatment. Her doctor says 3-4 months is the usual protocol, but I've read you need to stay on antibiotics for two whole months after all symptoms have resolved. Thanks in advance for any input ;-)
