May take longer: Late lyme, disseminated throughout the body and often in cns, takes longer treatment to resolve. Several months. Also many docs will use more than one antibiotic, to get the different forms of the lyme bacteria, like the spirochete, the cell wall deficient form and the cyst form. Supplements that improve immune system function also speed up recovery.
