Request Lyme Treatment

I made an appointment today to ask for Lyme treatment. The doctor surprisingly agreed and talked about how benign the antibiotics are. He gave me a 3 week prescription of Doxycycline. I asked why only 3 weeks and why Doxy and not Minocycline?

He said Doxy would do the job and Mino isn’t used for treating Lyme. I told him 3 weeks of Doxy MIGHT only be effective if you treated right after my first Lyme test. And Mino isn’t for Lyme!?!?! They give teenage girls Minocycline for their ACNE and I can’t get to treat a possible Lyme infection?
