Curious if anyone didnt have lyme or a bacterial infection and found this effective for CFS/ME?

I heard tetracyclines/antibiotics are not good for mitochondria

Thank You

Minocycline is considered to be better than doxy.
For CFS doxy can be effective too - there is an old CFS research, where people are taking abx for CFS management - it was even posted on this board somewhere, I believe.

I'am not sure its the direct result of abx itself - most likely its upped levels of endotoxemia the reason of under functioning mitochondria - again there is a research on this too..
