Foods that conflict with meds for Lyme & coinfections

Here is a great article about food interactions with drugs sometimes used to treat Lyme and coinfections.  I have been on a few of the meds listed in the artIcle, and I was unaware of these conflicts, especially dairy / calcium with the tetracyclines (Doxycycline, Minocycline) & fluroquinolones (Cipro, Avelox, Levaquin).

It also mentions that caffeine, and therefore chocolate, can interfere with some antibiotics, but then doesn't say which ones.

Thanks for sharing. I have been on some and am on others.

I wonder how many people's Doxycycline treatment for an EM rash failed because they didn't know about avoiding dairy and calcium when taking each dose?!  *shudder*
