    Clarithromycin for Borreliose

    Anyway, everything is very vague in Lyme disease anyway. The pathogen detection is difficult or even impossible (especially if the doctor does not play along and for reasons of cost and principle only IgG and IgM without Western Blot makes) and the symptoms are so complex that they can not be distinguished from side effects or a Herxheimer reaction. Therefore, a report in the context is anything but valid – that only beforehand. After a tick bite (without mottled, without disease symptoms but in the groin and thus optimal for the spread of pathogens) I have received precautionary initially Doxycyclin (2x100mg / day). Already after 4 hours everything hurt me, every step was followed by a sweat break, I was completely destroyed and was just lying around. I kept it for 4 days and switched to clarithromycin (2x250mg / day). The pain in the limbs improved, the sweats also. However, after 3-4 days, abdominal pain and diarrhea occurred. I got omniflora and perenterol. The diarrhea and abdominal pain disappeared, but I suffered from severe allergic rhinitis for 2-3 days, which I initially attributed to the environment (Hab Hayfever) – In hindsight, I’m not sure if this was also a side effect or not. All in all, I felt weaker and tired every day. Just like when you have a fever, just without a fever. So limb or muscle pain. After 18 days, the allergic rhinitis came back stronger than ever before. The nose just flowed, itching unbearably, smelled of blood and was constantly blocked. 3 days later, I took the last tablet, but has improved since then (10 days later) little to nothing. The nose is no longer crazy, but is still swollen to the sinuses and somehow seems sore. At the slightest effort I start to sweat and have the urgent feeling to lie down. My limbs are especially painful and hard to move. My conclusion: Either I have Lyme disease, that drug has failed and these are now the symptoms or all these are side effects of a drug-induced dysbiosis and viral infection in the nose. I’m typing on the latter. My ENT doctor says: It is clear that they destroy in the intestine, in the mouth, in the nose about 4000 bacterial strains and thus 2/3 of all living bacteria, whether good or bad, and leave there irritated but uninhabited skin, the now a perfect resettlement area for viruses and bacteria. So the immune system has its hands full fighting new threats, and that costs strength. He estimates that I will be still good for 2-3 months … My internist, however, says that all this can not be and that after 2-3 days no side effects are no longer available. Everything else is new infections or just Lyme disease. Now you can play roulette who is right … The bad thing: If you do one thing and it is the other, the symptoms worsened.

    Clarithromycin for Borreliose

    the first two weeks were very severe side effects: nightmares of the worst kind, heavy sweating at night on the back and on the legs, a little dizzy. After 14 days, however, the side effects disappeared very quickly and then they were completely gone. The remaining 4 weeks, the drug was very well tolerated. In the end I changed to another antibiotic because of the very last side effect: after 6 weeks I got gray teeth from one day to the next. However, this goes away after about 6 – 8 weeks by itself.

    Side effects: Nightmares; Dizziness

    Clarithromycin for Borreliose; Helicobacter pylori gastritis

    Simultaneous intake of Amoxi 3 times daily and Clari 2 times daily for Helicobacter pylori and a feverish, chronic Borrelia infection. At first I was absolutely thrilled, because already on the second day my increased temperature for months dropped by one degree. Especially after taking the Amoxi grabbed me from the 2nd-3rd. Every day, however, the most extreme fatigue I’ve ever experienced, so I slept for several hours after each tablet, so the whole of the day. In addition, it hit me a bit on the stomach, mild stomach cramps, heartburn, mouthburn increased while taking more and more, although I can not say whether this was caused by Amoxi, Clari or both. These complaints could be avoided, however, if I had eaten as recommended before taking enough. In addition, I still had a disturbing metallic taste in my mouth and strangely everything tasted spicy, even water. From about the 4th intake day, I got more and more heart palpitations and later cardiac arrhythmia, which is why the treatment had to be stopped eventually. These heart misfires still continue today, 5 weeks after ingestion. Nevertheless, I find the medication recommended, as they are much better tolerated than these entries suggest here and if I read sentences like I would not take this voluntarily again, I can only shake my head. Sometimes antibiotics are the only effective therapy and for a few days side effects are better than the alternative of not getting well at all! One should not forget that here above average rate many people who were dissatisfied with the drug. And especially in the use of antibiotics against diseases such as Lyme disease, many complaints are not side effects, but Herxheimer reactions.
