I take Rifampin 300mg 2x a day with minocycline, originally 100mg 2x a day but raised to 200mg 2x a day (I herxed more on the higher mino dose).
Yes, lots of herxing, tiredness, and pain inside what seemed to be my bone marrow.
But great improvement in my neuro symptoms. My subcutaneous nodules went away for a while, but they are back. Not sure what's up with that.
But yeah, I've had more success with Rifampin for Bartonella than with Biaxin (couldn't tolerate) or azithromycin.
