Hi Kuda! I took the combo of ivermectin (stromectol) and albendazole. Def good drugs for me, made me herx like crazy! I do think ivermectin is quite safe, albendazole may require some closer monitoring via labwork. What kind of dosing schedule will you be on? Initially doc just had me on one 18mg ivermectin dose weekly, and one albendazole dose (I forget dosage, but think it might've been 200mg). After a bit he upped the 18mg ivermectin dose to twice a week. There might be more aggressive dosage schedules out there but at the time that was hard enough for me to handle in terms of herxing so this dosage schedule worked for me.
And I 2nd frikfrak, alinia is also a good drug, overall quite safe in terms of side effects as well. Has broad activity: antiparasitic, antiviral, and I think I read somewhere activity against the roundform of borrelia. Could be worth looking into at some point.
