Hi, all. I am new to this forum, as I am usually on the colitis forum. I took Moxatag last July as part of my chronic Lyme treatment. I developed pancolitis and was hospitalized for 14 days. It was bad. Since then, I have never returned to normal. In trying to treat my continued gut problems, my Lyme doc put me on Alinia. I was fine until today, Day 6. I have developed profuse diarrhea. Is this a herx??? Should I stay on it? I do not want to end up back in the hospital! But, if this means my Lyme is being killed, then I will keep going. Has anyone ever experienced this?

Thanks.

I cannot say whether it's a herx or not, but I would tend to think it isn't. I read on drugs.com that the common side effects to Alinia is Diarrhea; headache; nausea; stomach pain. If it continues, you may want to discontinue taking it until you talk to your doctor.
