 I'm a little worried about starting clindamycin. I know that it can cause c-dif.. and I just got over a stomach virus of some sort with stomach pain and weakness.
 I will be starting it for possible babesia (test was negative through igenex). I have already started mepron and will also add artemisinin.
I can't take zithromax because i'm allergic to it, I wish I could.
 I wonder if I even have babesia? I hate taking all these meds for it not knowing for sure.
I don't have night sweats very often, just occationall while on LD treatment. I do have a low grade fever sometimes, pressure headache, joint pain, fatigue, brain fog, tingling and numbness in my hands and feet, stiff neck.
Does this sound like babesia?
Has anyone tried this combo for babesia?
I have been on mepron for about  a week. Should I have had a herx by now if I have babesia?  I have not really noticed anything yet, just a sinus infection to add to the mix.... 
Any experience with a babesia herx.??
Should I start the clindamycin? I'm really anxious about this one and the artemisinin for that matter..... 
What to do......what to do..... rolleyes

Hi georgiagirl,

I have taken all of those medications, but not all at the same time. I was treated and have recovered from Babesia. I never tested positive for it.

To my mind, you are in the hands of a doctor that is aware of how to treat these diseases. Go with it and do your best to keep yourself well.

Good luck

achievinggrace,
What were your babesia symptoms? What were your herx symptoms and how do you know that it's gone? Tests?
Thanks

I took clindamycin and it was fine. I was only on it 2 weeks for a skin infection. I would take it again if needed
