    My doctor has me on what is called a Modified Marshall Program. He has me take Minocycline every other day and Alinia every day. The Alinia had me herxing way to hard. I was supposed to take 2 in the morning and two in the evening. Now I can only tolerate one in the evening.

    I am not sure if Alinia is part of the program, but if you don't have to work I would take the highest dose I could stand. It just really seems to be doing a job on those funky spirochetes! I believe my doc said he found Alinia to be extremely helpful in the TX of Lyme disease.

    In any case, I wanted to find out what I am doing is modified. What do you do on your Marshall Protocol that I do not?

    Thanks!
    Hope

    On the MP you start out on light and sun avoidance plus benicar. Next you pulse mino every other day then later you work in Zithromax. Taking only a very small dose every 10 days. MP rules won't allow me to discuss any further abx as that is in stage 3 of the protocol.

    I have no idea what your doctor is up to but it wouldn't be approved by Dr. Marshall. But any doc can creat their own protocol.

    I hope you and everyone else has signed the petition that Victoria has posted as they are trying to stop letting us take long term antibiotics.

    This is very serious.

    i am also on what my dr. referred to as a modified marshall protocol. actually i am on parts of several.
    i take sawmento drops morning and night which is part of the bruher (sp) protocol to atack the lyme.
    i take alinia, originally 2 times a day every day and now pulsed every other day with zithromax. the alinia is a new malaria - antiparisite drug, not specifically an antibiotic acording to my doc. it was prescribed for a babesia coinfection, not lyme.
    i am also on benicar (which somehow helps the antibiotic work better), a high blood pressure med (countered with salt tabs to keep my blood pressure up)along with minocycline this is also part of the marschal protocol.
    and once a week i get an IV of vitamin C, b cocktail and glutetione, which is partly a lyme killer, immune and energy boost and detoxer.
    taking a couple months off from work so we are treating it pretty aggresively
