I have been using Tigecycline IV through a PICC line IV delivery system twice a day 12 hours apart for the past month to treat Bacterial growth due to Chronic Lyme Disease. It has been very easy to use and from what I can tell is helping me more than past IV PICC line antibiotics. I have been battling Lyme Disease for 5 years now and hopefully this medicine will help get me closer to stabilizing it or even possibly curing me. I will let you know after 3 full months of use and follow up afterwards. It does make me have nausea, fatigue, dizziness, and for some strange reason extreme hunger without any weight gain. I eat and eat like a horse but gain little or no weight? no explanation for it, it just happened once I started on this medicine. I had very little appetite before starting this medicine and was using other IV antibiotics. I truly hope that this medicine is the answer to my illness or at least gets the ball rolling in the right direction. I have had an IV PICC line in my left arm for 1 year, an IV PICC line in my right arm for another year, and now this one. It is almost time for a Life Port if this does not work. I am taking things in stride, one day at a time, and by the Grace of God, I pray that I get well soon. --Jon Blaze
