New Stanford Study on Treating Lyme
New research suggests that a common allergy medication may be effective in starving and killing the bacteria that cause Lyme disease.
There is no recommended dosage/duration for Claritin at this time. This is very preliminary research, in a test tube, not in people. Researchers used a substantially larger dose than a human could tolerate. Nothing is known about what effect this would have on a human case of Lyme. So, while the research is certainly intriguing, I would not grab at this as the reason to go buy out your local drug store’s supply of Claritin. –editor, http://lymedisease.org
