Amoxicillin

Hey All  Sorry ( I wasn’t sure where to post this) I am new to this and was wondering if any of y`all feel better when you take a daily dose of 750mgs or more of Amoxicillin??

I was diag. w/ MS in 1997 and was doing ok until 2005 when I guess I got bit by a tick and was not caught until Dec 2007 and started oral treatment of antibiotics for a few months.I had Lymes in my Central Nervous system, and in my blood. Anyways
Since I moved to PA two years ago the doctors keep wanting ot fight with me saying its the MS and not the past lymes, but none of the MS meds work on me except Prednisone( which has mad me a totally different person cause of the side effects) Anyways to make a long story short have any of you been on a daily antibiotic that makes your MS feel better. If I dont take my Amoxicillin after a few days I am bed ridden but when I take it daily I act. have some sort of life and I am not stuck in bed daily. I had one lesion on my optical nerve then after the Lymes I have about 3 more on the brain and two on the Cervical.

Please help if ya can so I can let these doctors and insurance companies know what we go thru either way.

Thanks
Jen

    Hi Jen,
    I just found your post when doing research to see if anyone else, or if a medical study, had found this correlation. Because, YES! YES! and YES! Taking Amox for something else, and EVERY time, my MS symptoms are vastly improved…I mean, the muscle aches go down, I can focus better, my mood improves and I have more energy, as well as feel more coordinated. We need to bring this to the community’s attention, and our doctor’s as well. I had heard from my Lyme doctor that AMOX is a strong anti-inflammatory, so perhaps that’s why it works. I am finding just one a day is sufficient. And, contrary to what we are told about long term use and drug resistance etc. I had a friend who lost his spleen and took one Pen VK every day for life, so I’m wondering if this could be a new protocol for us. Please, know you may be on to something, and share your valid personal experience.
    Best, Skylark
