Hi Nexis, it is good to see you! How are you doing?
Babesiosis is simliar to malaria and needs to be treated with a combintion of an anti-malarial (often Mepron or Malarone) and an antibiotic (Zithromax, Biaxin, or Ketek). I believe that Mepron is stronger than Malarone.
I agree with KeepHope that now the typical dose for Mepron is four teaspoons daily, often two teaspoons twice daily. Previously 2-3 teaspoons daily was prescribed. I believe the recommended dose of Zithromax is 500-1200 mg daily and Biaxin is 1000 mg daily. I am not familiar with the recommended dose of Ketek. Hopefully someone else is. Some doctors are also adding high-quality Artemisinin (anti-malarial herb) to the protocol.
It is my understanding that the minimum treatment time for Babesiosis is four months. Longer treatment is not unusual. It can be tough to eradicate. You can read about Babesiosis starting on page 22 of Dr. Burrascano's Treatment Guidelines at http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/B_guidelines_12_17_08.pdf
