    What is the lowest dosage that someone has been on to treat a mycoplasma infection?

    I remember reading someone was on doxy 100mg ever other day and seemed to be herxiong and clearing things.

    Does this sound right (or is my memory bad - ha, ha)?
    Thanks,
    Ben

    Hi Ben,
    I take Doxy 100 mgs,2 x a day. Have been on them since 12/15/2004. Haven't had any side effects but yeast infection,which I take Nystatin USP powder 1/8 tsp. mixed in water, once a day.I don't feel better or worse. I know it helps Arthritis b/c I was on it before.You can take 1 pill every other day but I was on it for a good while before I cut it down to that dose.If you start on that dose it will take a lot longer to work.

    Is 100 mgs. twice a day but if this causes too much of a Herx, it can be slowed down. I believe I also remember someone who had to only take 100 mgs every other day.

    Love, Mikie
