  • Perceived effectiveness for Lyme Disease: Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Very
Advice & Tips: After about 20 minutes outside i ended up with big blistering burns on my hands and a few of my face. Be very careful with any sun exposure and limit your time outside for the first few weeks. i had no reactions at first. The site isnt letting me change the date for some reason but i took this med in 2009 when first diagnosed with lyme disease. i also made up the dosage because it was required and had no i dont know option.
