sorry to hear about your daughter's problem
treatment of choice for chronic lyme disease is doxycycline. please let me know if you have more questions.
what symptom your daughter has.
the response to therapy is often slower in patients with late disease, particularly late neurologic manifestations.
ceftriaxone is used for neurological and cardiac involvement.
ceftriaxone ( rocephin ) is used for neurological and cardiac involvement.
if she does not have neurological or cardiologic involvement, she may be benefitted from doxycycline. ( it is cheaper than rocephin )
Doxycycline is often used because it is effective in treating a potential coinfecting agent, Anaplasma phagocytophilum.
