I had some severe flu-like stuff upon starting mepron and then some overall weakness and trancing that lasted throughout the entire time I took it. I took it for 8 weeks and 6 weeks. Both times, my liver enzymes went up (although they go up when I'm off all meds as well) and my doctor had to stop Mepron for now as a precaution.
I took the standard 2tsp dose and then the double dose. I took it first with clindamycin, next with zithromax and doxy. The zithromax/doxy/mepron combo was much stronger.
I was worried about it, but it was not as bad as I thought it would be. I actually don't even think it tastes that bad. Just make sure you monitor your liver enzymes because they can elevate pretty randomly and quickly whether from meds or the infections themselves. If it were my choice when to start it, I would stay on zith for a week and then add Mepron.
