    I'm asking for a friend who has a Coccidiosis problem going on, & has lost most of her chicks, & her husband can't eat non-organic eggs due to his destroyed immune system.

    Okay. But there's no egg withdrawal correct?

    No egg withdrawal. Corid isnt an antibiotic. It's a thiamine blocker.

    Okay. My friends husband has a immune system that pretty much doesn't exist anymore, & she says that the medication will kill her husband if he consumes non-organic eggs, do you believe that's possible? She says he has Lyme Disease.

    Okay. Lyme Disease is a bacterial infection caused by tick bites, from what it sounds like from her, is that he's never went to the doctor to get treated for it. It's easily curable if caught early.

    I think your friend should ask their doctor.

    I know. I think it's a good idea to do so also.

    Forgot to mention at the beginning her husband is native American, & will only go for organic solutions for ailments, & food also.
