Hi CajunGrl. Artemisinin is an anti-malarial herb used to treat Babesiosis. Allergy Research (which is also Nutricology) is one brand that many Lyme doctors recommend. Ask your doctor about dosage. I take three 100 mg capsules daily. I believe Fern's Nutrition http://www.fernsvitamins.com/Digestive/artemisinin.html has the best price.
Will you only be taking 500 mg daily of Biaxin? I believe the recommended dose is 1000 mg daily. Some doctors are now prescribing two teaspoons of Mepron twcie daily. If the smaller dose does not work for you, you make want to talk to your doctor about a higher dose. Some people with Babesiosis herx on day three and approximately every three weeks.
Good luck with your new protocol!
Hi CajunGrl. Are you seeing a Lyme knowledgeable doctor?
Dr. Burrascano discusses antibiotic doses starting on page 18 of his guidelines and he discusses Babesiosis treatment starting on page 23. He mentions adding Artemesia.
