Minocycline and Doxycycline are the same thing, I took doxy four 4 years and felt much better stronger clearer head better movement bladder control, felt like I wasn't sick. my neurologist has her documentation of no progression at all for that time. then I took a fall getting into the wheelchair and hit my head pretty good since then not so good. my neurologist gave no credit to the doxy said it's just how ms goes she said, now I feel a little vindicated knowing there's proof it helps.
just wanted to share this because I know it helped me and I wasn't crazy there is really something to this. i owe Sarah thanks for getting me started on antibiotics i think starting early in the disease is key, ... -1.3437802

Thank-you Robbie, for those kind words. I think getting it started early is definitely a help, although I had the damned disease since I was in my early twenties, then started the abx treatment when I was 45. For many of those years, it was very benign though.

How are you doing now? Sarah
An Itinerary in Light and Shadow Completed Dr Charles Stratton / Dr David Wheldon abx regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years. Still improving with no relapses since starting. Can't run but can paint all day.
