When I first started treatment in February with Mepron, Zithro, Mino and Artemisinin, I experienced many symptoms from herxing but also eventually noticed slight improvements. The doctor has taken me off Mino and I’ve been on IV Rocephin for 10 days now.  I have not herxed at all and actually feel as if I'm backsliding and losing any improvements made. 

Is not herxing a bad sign?

Hi scorpio1960.  Are you taking Mepron, Zithro, and Artemisinin with the Rocephin or are you on Rocephin only? 

Not everyone has a herx reaction.  You have only been on Rocephin for ten days which is not very long.  You still may have a herx.  Many people herx around week four of treatment.  Make sure you are documenting your symptoms daily.  One way to do this is to list the main symptoms you have each day with a numerical rating of their severity from 1-10.  Over time when you review this information, you can see when your herxes occur and how you are responding to the meds.

Thanks Ticker. Yes, I'm still taking Mepron, Zithro and Atemisinin. I guess I'm just being impatient and making comparisons to when I first started the orals. Not that I'm looking forward to experiencing all of that again but if it's a sign that things are working I welcome it. lol
