    Just wondering if anyone knows about this. Had blood drawn for the lyme test while taking antibiotics for a long time. Have not ran the test yet.

    Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.

    The only test that are considered state of the art accurate by Lyme Docs is Igenex. Most others can miss 50% of lyme or more. At one time Igenex wanted one to take zithromax for a week prior to testing. They no longer want you to do that.
    If your test comes back negative and it is not an igenex I would think twice.

    the test will be done at iginex. I just wanted to try and see if anyone knew before I actually ran the test. I really don't want to waste the money if it should be done while not on antibiotics. thanks again.
