Lancet, Vol 345: 1436-37 Lopez-Andreu JA; Salcede-Vivo J; . Our patient received during 2 years seven short-term antibiotic treatments, achieving transitory improvements. Nonetheless, his condition greatly deteriorated. In October, 1993, he started a different antibiotic regimen, ceftriaxone, 2 g per day intravenously for 12 months, oral roxithromycin 150 mg per day for 2 months, and oral ciprofloxacin, 500 mg per 12 hours for 2 months. After ceftriaxone he has continued with oral minocycline, 100 mg per 12 hours for 7 months. His quality of life has greatly improved and the treatment is more tolerable than the borreliosis. We add, however, in accord with the advice of others that antibiotics should be continued in the long term, until we achieve cure or delay the progression of the disease.
