**QUOTE- July 2016- "A group of doctors from Boston Children's Hospital's Division of Infectious Diseases wrote to legislative leaders, "Well-designed studies have shown that administration of additional or prolonged courses of antibiotics confers no benefit to patients who have had a standard course of accepted treatment for Lyme disease."

**Quote- July 2016- Christina Hermos, a pediatric infectious disease doctor at UMass Memorial Children's Medical Center, wrote to lawmakers, "Not only is the use of long-term antibiotics contrary to the best evidence about Lyme, but it also puts our patients and community at risk for the very real risks of unnecessary antibiotic use." Hermos said only a small number of doctors prescribe long-term antibiotics to treat Lyme disease, and it can cause harmful complications, such as infections, allergic reactions or drug-resistance to other diseases.
**Quote- July 2016- "Far from improving the patient's quality of life, prolonged antibiotic therapy may actually increase the patient's suffering," society president Daniel McQuillen wrote to legislators. McQuillen called the treatment "unproven and potentially unsafe." Link Here **
