    Hi,

    I also have chronic lyme and take long term antibiotics. I have not had any problems and take lots of probiotics and other supplements.

    My best advice is this....

    Go to lymenet.org.....click on flash discussion....sign up for free.....click on the Medical Questions board.....read posts and post your own questions.

    Lymenet.org is a large lyme community and a fast moving board with lots of very intelligent people who will help.

    They have other boards also for lyme....General Support, Seeking a Doctor, Activism, etc.

    There are some other people on lymenet.org from Canada, so you may be able to help each other with info too.

    You say you are uninformed. I am going to give you some important information...
