SEAMom Posted May 16, 2015 Report Share Posted May 16, 2015 My 14 year son had his first PANDAS symptoms March 7th. He was put on a 14 day course of Augmentin. He improved significantly. Within 48 hours of stopping the antibiotics his symptoms came back. It took me 5 days to get his pediatrician to give him more Augmentin. She gave him 30 day Rx - 875 mg 2x a day. Can anyone help me with next step after that? Is 30 more days long enough? Should it be longer or should he go on a smaller dose for a while afterwards? I really need help with antibiotic doses and treatment guidelines. I am in Seattle and there are very few doctors who treat PANDAS here. I have an appointment with a specialist but we don't have an appointment until the end July. My pediatrician has been very cooperative in working with us and I think she actually believes that my son has PANDAS now after his symptoms came back after going off the Augmentin. But she does not really now how to treat PANDAS. She has just been going off of my recommendation. Unfortunately it has been 5 days since he went back on the Augmentin and we have seen little improvement. Any help with this is greatly appreciated!
