Brief Answer:
Doxycycline

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The first line medication for Lyme disease is Doxycycline at office visits. It is given for 20 to 30 days depending on the clinical features.
You should take it before it is late.
Your doctor might have misdiagnosed earlier but now he had prescribed right medicine for Lyme's disease.
