Nexis, I wouldn't trust a negative diagnosis for lyme especially if you have babesiosis. So if after treating the babesia you have other symptoms go after the lyme too.I was treated with mepron and zithromax - the same dose Ticker suggested. It took almost 2 years to get rid of it for me. I hope it doesn't take that long for you.
