The Clinical Application of Disulfiram in Tick-Borne Infections

Over the past 18 months, disulfiram has been increasingly prescribed for patients suffering from Lyme disease and its co-infections. Patient responses have been quite varied, and there have been significant issues with neurotoxicity as well as Herxheimer reactions.
