I am taking both Biaxin and Plaquenil for Lyme disease. The first choice for antibiotic therapy is doxycycline , a penicillin derivative , to which I am allergic. It was explained to me by the physician that the Plaquinel changes the PH in the red blood cells, making it less hospitable to the Lyme spirochete .
However, I will question the doctor about the possibility of a co-infection, babeosis , also known as "Northeast Malaria", and if that is relative to my case.
I hope you feel better soon!
