Dr strongly suspects babesia on top of lyme.   starting me on zithromax and malarone.
 
Whats everyones experience with malarone?  is there a herx with a malarial drug and protozon die-off?
 
Any info at all on both topics welcome :)

I am being treated for Babesia with Chinese herbs through Dr. Zhang. No experience with malarone, but as with anything that will die off, detoxing is very important. A portable infrared sauna can be purchased new off of ebay for under $200. SO very worth it!

Hi Vin,

I was first prescribed Malorone but asked my doctor to switch me to Mepron since more people here have taken it. They are both anti-malarials. My pharmacist told me that one was a little stronger and I can't remember which one(Lyme brain).

I wasn't on Mepron for long but I did herx on it about an hour after I took it. I was very tired and ran a low grade fever.

I hope this helps you out a little.
