    Dear All,

    I have an appointment with my Doc next week. I was wondering if anyone can recommend good studies that would convince a Doc who might never heard of treatment to use Anti-Biotics for FM treatment.

    I would like to go in with some paper-work and not just talking off the top of my head saying I heard ABX helps people with FM. I would also want to know the recommended Dosage of Doxy per week.

    Thanks!

    I used the search engine and printed material on the antibiotics. I found one by Dr. Jacob Teitlebaum which stated that it was not necessary to have the test, that one can try the antibiotics and if they make one feel better, they should be continued according to Dr. Nicolson's protocol. I also printed out material by Dr. N. We have a lot of info right here in our library too.

    I read, highlighted, and annotated the material to save my doc time. He really appreciated it. Good luck.

    Love, Mikie
