Patients with Lyme disease have a variety of special needs for nutritional support and prescription drugs that can only be met by compounding. At Lee Silsby Compounding Pharmacy, we are excited to aid in the treatment for those with Lyme disease.
Lyme is typically associated with:
- joint pain or stiffness
- memory problems
- lack of concentration
- vision changes
- low body temperature
- hormone disruption
Pain relief is the foremost need of patients. The challenge is that most commercially available analgesics and antibiotics are oral formulations. Not only are Lyme patients highly sensitive; most have GI complications that can interfere with absorption of oral medications as well as essential nutrients.

Testimonial:I just wanted to let you know that in the past 6 months I have found a pharmacy well-equipped to serve Lyme patients' special med needs: Lee Silsby. I have been dealing with Lyme and toxic mold issues for 5 years, and this pharmacy has been the best in terms of efficiency, quality of service, and ability to work with my insurance. They have bent over backwards to compound meds for me using the least allergenic options. They are in Ohio, but can ship anywhere. I actually stopped there on my drive (across country) last week to meet the pharmacy staff in person, and they are lovely. Although they work a lot with the autism community, Alan--the pharmacist--has recently attended ILADS conferences and met Lyme docs, and he hopes to be of service to Lyme patients as well. Anyhow, I just thought I'd share because had I known about this pharmacy sooner, I would have saved money and had more of my needs met.
