Christianmom Posted June 24, 2011 Report Share Posted June 24, 2011 Had first appointment with lyme doctor Wednesday for my son, 16, who has severe, debilitating OCD as his only symptom. Bottom line is the doctor thinks my son has lyme and bartonella as a clinical diagnosis. My son was on biaxin 1,000 mg/day for PANDAS and the lyme doctor kept him on this and added amoxicillin 2,000 mg/day. (The first week I am only to give my son 1,000 mg. of amoxicillin to reduce herxing). When we return for our next appointment at the end of the month, the doctor wants to add rifampin to the biaxin and amoxicillin (don't know the dosage). I was wondering if anyone could tell me what herxing to expect and when--none so far (it is day 2), just his usual severe OCD. Will I see his OCD worsening as a herx? My son has never had any stomach or joint issues and is on three capsules a day of iFlora (probiotic). Also, could anyone tell me how long until there will be improvement. Will there not be improvement until he is on the rifampin? Thank you all for your help and encouragement. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
