P.S. Levaquin made my tendons ache terribly after being on it only 2 days so I cannot take it.
P.S.S. All literature I have read says we shouuld not take malerone/mepron with rifampin, but my LLMD says taking it and having a little absorbed is better than nothing. Apparently rifampin diminishes the affects of malerone/mepron. I also worry that the babesia is not gone entirely too. Confusing ????There should be another word invented to describe this not knowing what the right thing to do is. In a perfect world we would have LLMDs who know exactly how to treat what we have and find out what we have too!
