Disulfiram and the Lyme Co-infections

Let me start with the update. Tonight I take my fifth dose of disulfiram, 62.5mg in the evening. Each subsequent dose after the first one has led to a smaller and smaller Lyme herx. At this point, I think I will increase the dose after the sixth dose (no need to knock myself out for Thanksgiving).

A Historic Moment in Lyme Disease

A possible cure Over the past few weeks and months, a lot has been happening in what will be someday written about the history of Lyme Disease.
