Hi Ny82 - welcome to our community!
I can't help you with the Mepron questions. I have not taken it yet.
But, I have read it's a difficult med to be on.
The best way to deal with your symptoms is to do effective detoxing.
Here's a link to a thread with a lot of good ideas:www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html
You need to do multiple methods regular (daily)
You can start with drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day
Add some fresh squeezed lemon juice into some glasses
Take probiotics - for your gut health
Take something for liver support - eg. Milk Thistle
You could start those right away. Then start adding in another detox every few days...don't start several news ones at once.
