ANTIBIOTICS

Coordinated care

Antibiotics are the first line intervention for the treatment of Lyme Disease and Co-infections.  Dr. Jason Bachewich ND will coordinate with your family doctor, specialist or out of province MD/ND to assure you get the appropriate medication for the correct amount of time.  

If local cooperation is not possible, you will be referred out of province to see a Lyme specialist for the prescription meds only.

Duration of treatment can range from 2 weeks to over a year, depending on the severity, chronicity and number of infections.

 

Naturopathic Doctors do not have prescribing rights in the province of Manitoba, however we are trained in their use and can advise your MD on which antibiotics would be effective in treating your case.
