    Can’t tell (for Lyme Disease)
  • Side effects
    Severe (Sensitivity to sunlight, Jarisch-Herxeimer reaction)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
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.
