so you only took it for ten days? when did the herx start after taking the medicine? i just didnt think a herx could begin after just one pill... also my "herxing" symptoms seemed more babesia like in nature than bartonella.. it was the heart pounding and internal shaking

Hi hezzer926,

When I first started Flagyl; I swear I herxed within the first couple hours. We all react differently to treatments. Some herxs sooner than other, some never do.
