How One Woman’s Brush With Death Cured Her Lyme Disease Pain
Antibiotics Are Used to Treat Early Stages of Lyme Disease
If treatment begins quickly, it can be effective. Oral antibiotics such as doxycycline, amoxicillin, or cefuroxime can be used for 14 to 21 days to treat early stages of Lyme Disease. However, if the disease has already reached a person’s central nervous system, a doctor may recommend intravenous antibiotics for 14 to 28 days. Intravenous antibiotics can rid the body of infection, but they come with their own side effects, and Lyme Disease symptoms may persist for some time after treatment ends.
