I have a question for anyone out here....Has anyone ever tried the combo of Mepron, Zithromax, Biaxin, and Artemisinin for Babesia? I was self medicating on 1000mg.biaxin daily for 1 week then the next week I added 100mg artemisinin 2x a day along with it. My brain was not searching for words anymore when I spoke and mentally I felt like my old self from years ago. My sweats diminshed to "hots" and no chills. My knees, legs, and upper back and neck still hurt as did the compression on my chest. I figured alot had to do with herxing. My ID dr. put me on Mepron and Zithromax as my MDL test showed babs. I am also taking the 100mg artemisinin 2x a day with mep. & zith. BUT I want to add the biaxin back in as I just started noticing these past 2 days that I am looking for words again to finish my sentences. When I was on the biax. my thought process and speaking was more cohesive and I want it back like it was for those 2 weeks. I can't ask my ID dr. as she only gave me 3 weeks worth of mep & zith because that's all she says I need for treatment. She successfully treated my bartonella with rifampin and biaxin for 3 months, but she says babs only needs 3 weeks worth of antib's.
Anyone ever try this combo of mep, zith, biax, artem for babs?
open for suggestions here folks:)
