Lyme and Antivirals- Which comes first?

Posts: 54

Is anyone taking antivirals in addition to antibiotics?

Do you take antivirals and abx at the same time? Start antiviral after the the bacterial infection has cleared or vice versa?

What do your doctors say? What do you think about the link between lyme and virus activation? Discuss!

I happen to taken Oil of Oregano and Olive Leaf Extra which are both antibacterial and antiviral.

I haven't been sick with a virus while having Lyme so I can't quite comment on the link between the two.

I was on Valtrex for high EBV titers and I do take Olive Leaf Extract.

I am off Valtrex now. I don't think it did much. I did IV Vit C and I think that helped most.

HI Rebecca-

I take C-Bioflavanoids, Red Marine Algae, Oil of Oregano, and took Olive leaf Extract in the past.

Colloidal silver was my antibiotic, but it also treats viruses, fungus, bacterias..

Yes, you can take anti-virals with antibiotics..certain viruses will always be in your system, so it's wise to treat for them as long as your immune system is lacking.

Thanks all. I started abx months ago. I am going to start taking antivirals with them now.
