Customer Question
I am herxing from...

I am herxing from lymes disease.But more concerned about liver It was pretty bloated and hurting been drinking lemon water .I have NO IDEA what to expect. The LLDR I went and saw gave me meds and paper telling about herx and what not to eat. I didnt take meds tonight, But need to take 1mg ativan and 1 300mg gabapentin for sleep Is this going to be to much for liver?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

She put me on Clarithromycin 500mg and Cefuroxime 500 2X a day Plus I have been trying to take vitamins .Levaquin and cant think of what else . But stomach is so messed up.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

you can take the ativan and gabapentin

your liver will be fine.

make sure you take those antibitoics with food in your stomach already, never on an empty stomach

antibitoics and lemon can upset the stomach

you may need a stomach acid reducing agent to help decrease stomach acid.

zantac or prilosec or maalox or mylanta could help your stomach

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
