Hi CajunGrl. Are you also taking Biaxin, Zithromax, or Ketek? From what I understand, Mepron needs to be taken with one of those to be effective for Babesiosis.
If you are taking one of those and want to add Amoxicillin, check with your doctor or pharmacist to make sure it does not reduce the effectiveness of your other meds.

CajunGrl ,from what I understand Mepron needs to be taken with one of those three antiibotics to effectively treat Babesiosis. Dr. B. discusses this on page 24 of his guidelines at http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/B_guidelines_12_17_08.pdf
I hope you do well on the Amoxicillan.
