Los Angeles:Amy Schumer revealed she was recently diagnosed with the tick-borne illness Lyme disease.
The 39-year-old comedian shared a childhood photo to Instagram on Tuesday saying that though it was recently diagnosed she has ‘maybe had it for years.’
On the post, the Trainwreck star asked her followers and famous friends for treatment suggestions as she has been put on the strong antibiotic doxycycline.
‘I got it and I’m on doxycycline,’ the actress added. ‘I have maybe had it for years, any advice?’
Though the mother-of-one clarified that she is feeling good on the treatment, writing ‘I also want to say that I feel good and I’m excited to get rid of it.’
She went on to ask about having alcohol on the antibiotic ‘Can you have a glass of wine or two on it?’
The antibiotic ‘is known to interact with alcohol, and the effectiveness of doxycycline may be reduced in people with a history of chronic alcohol consumption,’ according to the NHS.
Since the treatment can cause photosensitivity Schumer said she knows ‘to stay out of the sun.’
Doxycycline isn’t the only treatment as she revealed she is also taking an herbal treatment from the medical herb farm Great Cape Herbs known as ‘Lyme-2.’
