How can Lyme disease be treated?

Hi back. I am on Doxycycline Mono 300 mg for Lyme, also Wellbutrin and Celecoxib for seasonal disorder, inflamation, pain, etc. I cannot kick this month old cold. I know sleep is what I need. In the mean time do you recommend one immune booster over another, and should I also do Pedialyte?

Hello,

Yes, Lyme disease is an infection which can be treated by antibiotics like doxycycline, which already you are taking. So, dont worry about that. I won't recommend you taking immune Booster for this disease. Regarding Pedialyte, the thing is it replaces body fluid and electrolyte lost in vomiting and diarrhea. So, I don't think you need that.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Prashant
