    I know its antibiotic therapy, but what does it mean and is it for long term therapy??? What sorts of ABX treatments are there. Looks as if I also have Lyme so ABX will most likely be in my future.......

    It does stand for antibiotics and if you do a web search on The Road Back Foundation they have an antibiotic protocol for autoimmune/mycoplasma infections. It usually uses Doxycycline (Doxy) in lower doses than normal antibiotic therapy and it is given for a much longer period of time, taking intermittent breaks in the therapy. Read the protocol on their website and it will explain everything. Love, Terri
