    Any suggestions on what I could take for mycoplasms. I have had CFS for twenty two years and have been doing extensive research into this illness. It seems that most doctors and researchers feel this is caused by virus, pathogens, or mycoplasms. Where do I begin to treat this? What should be my first step to take. I have been to so many doctors that I have lost count. Nothing has helped?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    love,
    Andrea

    Have you checked out Prof. Garth Nicolson?

    Check out his website. It is a treasure trove of research and the protocol for treating the mycoplasmas. Some docs are willing to try Doxycycline, or one of the other ABX, empirically without the expensive PCR DNA testing. Mine did but we knew it was a mycoplasma infection which triggered my illnesses full blown back in 1990.

    Some docs are also trying antivirals empirically and having good results. I had excellent results with Famvir. My ins. no longer covers it so I now take Acyclovir when I need to pulse the AV.

    Good luck.

    Love, Mikie
