KH, I was on biaxin/plaq for months without any herx.
Cipro and artemisinin were added, still no herx.
Rifampin, art dose increase, were added........then Herx!!!!
Don't know for sure if it was the rifampin added to the combo or what?
So, my LLMD had me stop the art, cipro and rifampin for a while.
I think meds react very differently with all of us. And it's important to talk to you LLMD about it.
