Lyme Disease Medications
There is a first-line antibiotic treatment commercially available for Lyme disease. However, it is well known that patients develop unresolved symptoms. Compounding pharmacies can make medications that are useful in treating Lyme disease and other conditions if they are not available elsewhere. Many patients make use of compounding medications for customizing their treatment based on individual sensitivities.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides safe and proven compounding medications to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
Compounding Treatment for MCAS and Lyme Disease
It is a well-known fact that borrelia burgdorferi can cause mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS). MCAS symptoms can be caused in infected individuals by several excipients present in drugs. Unfortunately, excipients in most cases make an essential component of commercially available medications. They improve the stability of the drug, make production simpler, or are present in the form of colors and flavors to make the drug more palatable. Most patients don’t get affected by these excipients.
However, they can have profound effects on patients with MCAS, Lyme disease, and mold illness among other conditions. Compounding for Lyme disease involves targeting the original infection and associated effects and conditions.
The first step MCAS patients need to take is to find triggers. The next is to avoid those triggers. You may struggle with symptom relief if the product causing an adverse reaction is not removed. Ketotifen and cromolyn are few medications available at compounding pharmacies which can relieve symptoms of MCAS.
Ketotifen is largely available in other countries as an antihistamine for treating asthma, mast-cell disorders, and allergies. In the US, the drug is not FDA approved for oral version and is available only through a compounding pharmacy.
Low Dose Naltrexone
Naltrexone can be made by compounding pharmacies in lower doses for improving these conditions. There are no effective studies on LDN for Lyme disease. However, several patients use it for sleep issues, brain fog, and joint pain. Generally, it is offered to those patients where symptom improvement fails to occur from first line treatments.
Medication for Pain Management
Lyme disease is often accompanied with chronic pain. This is especially true for neuropathic pain as a result of nerve damage. Multiple ingredients form part of topical pain creams made by compounding pharmacies. Gabapentin, ketoprofen, and cyclobenzaprine among others can be used for improving neuropathic and muscle pain.
Patients suffering from sensitivity causing infections may not be able to stick to their prescription schedule for managing other conditions. For instance, patients with MCAS, Lyme disease and thyroid conditions may not be able to take their regular thyroid medications without problems. There is an overlap in patients suffering from mold toxicity and Lyme disease.
Compounding pharmacies come in helpful for such patients by providing pure cholestyramine for mold toxicity. This is a form of binder used for removing bodily toxins. It is usually compounded with sweeteners, additives, and other ingredients which may cause sensitivities.
AIP provides advanced compounding pharmacy solutions, including online prescription refills to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
