Dear All, Thought I let you know about my pursuit of ABX use. Saw my doc yesterday. I printed out a Q/A from Nicholson website about his recommended ABX treatment regimen. The question was from a doctor to Dr. Nicholson wanting to know how to treat CFIDS/Mycoplasma fermentas with ABX. My doc was really turned off by the 6 month regimen even though I thoroughly explained the theory behind the treatment. He said that is an extremely long time to be on ABX. He basically wanted to know what/when is the END GAME. He feels like he doesn't have a justified reason to put me on long-term ABX. I guess he didn't see a END GAME to such a treatment without more indepth justification. He had great concerns of me getting worst or not being able to get off ABX without getting worst. He ended up giving me a 2 week Script for Doxy. He wants me to see him after taking it for 2 weeks. He ordered some type of generic blood test for bacteria infection. I guess he wants to see me again before giving me more Doxy. Also maybe thinking that the generic blood test will give him a reason to continue to give me ABX. BOTTOMLINE.....I think he would treat me with the long term ABX regimen if I did a PCR Mycoplasma test and it showed bacteria. I'll have to find out about the costs. My doc didn't know much about the test costs.
