Antibiotics can affect Lyme disease sufferers' health
Placeholder Image

The monthly Lyme Disease support group meeting is scheduled for May 29 from 6:30-8 p.m.  at the Hillsboro Public Library meeting room, 819 High Ave., Hillsboro.

It is well known that tick bite diseases may severely affect the long term health of anyone. Perhaps less well known is the issue of how antibiotic treatments may severely affect the long term health of tick bite disease sufferers. This month, a portion of the meeting will focus on what some individuals are doing as they transition from antibiotic treatment.

What is recommended for anyone before beginning antibiotic treatment for tick bite diseases? What problems can arise while taking antibiotics? What challenges are faced in going off antibiotic treatment? What can be done to rebuild one’s health after antibiotics?

Those who attend this support group offer their personal perspectives, some of which is based on professional advice, some arising from individual and/or common study of the issues; and some stemming from particular experience about what has or has not worked for a given individual.

The issues involved are complex and many. Indeed, the evening’s discussion cannot address everything. But it should serve as a useful platform for further personal study.

The public is welcome to attend, whether to simply listen or to actively converse.
