  • Effectiveness
    None (for misdiagnosis of ALS)
  • Side Effects
    Mild
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: After reading much about a possible lyme disease causing neurological symptoms similar to ALS, I decided to try low-dose long-term antibiotic treatment for Lyme disease and malarian infection. After a year on the program I decided to stop. I found no benefit to the treatment and some of the side effects, especially in the eye, needed to be avoided. Some people may have a Lyme infection which mimics ALS but in my case that did not seem to be the case. It was worth a try.
Cost: $100-199 monthly
