Bicillin L-A (penicillin) for Lyme Disease, Neurologic: So, I have been doing this for a month and feel terrible the first two days then I start feeling like my usual self. I can cook and do some house chores so that is a good sign since I haven't had much success in much of anything! My husband is much better at giving these shots compared to the staff so we do them at home. It is better than the pills. I hate shots but my husband is wonderful so I am ok with it.
Bicillin L-A (penicillin) for Lyme Disease, Neurologic: I took oral medications for over a year. My health improved, but I was no where near where I wanted to be. I have been using Bicillin LA for 5 weeks now and have enjoyed a huge improvement in my health. I'm not quite back to my normal self, but I am very optimistic that the Bicillin is going to be the ticket that returns me to a healthy state.

Penicillin VK (penicillin) for Strep Throat: I started feeling a little bit better on the 2nd day after starting the Penicillin-VK. I had a little bit of loose stools, but I believe that happens with most antibiotics--some much worse than others. I was much better after taking all of the medication--but once you get Strep--you are prone to it. I need to have my tonsils removed--they are enormous and just catching bacteria which causes me to continue to get Strep.
