Hi guys...took mepron and zithro for 4 days, stopped meds last Friday night....TODAY one week later is the first day I feel like I HOPE I might be coming out of this. It was a mind blowing herx. LIke someone turned back the clock 6 or 9 months...i have been scared out of my mind. It has been 6 months off Abx, but I just finished 2 months of diflucan, took a week off and was feeing really confident, and BETTER, but frustrated with how slow my recovery feels. I could have done another month of diflucan, but my LLMD has been wanting me to give this a try for a long time. My system is soooooo sensitive though, that last time ONE zithro, sent me off the charts in pain. At least this time I made it 4 days before I wanted to load the gun. I read somewhere that that cmbo could cause a nasty herx and bc it stays in your system a while, that it takes a long time to come out of it. Anyone think this could be the case? I'm just scared. THANKS
