Has anyone ever used a powder or capsule form of Mepron / Atovaquone?
The liquid has saccharin and xanthan gum, probably derived from corn, which gives me problems- namely depression and rage. I avoid pretty much all food but homemade and feel so much better on a strict corn-free diet. But I have to take a double-dose of Mepron (I really need to stick with it at least 3 weeks) and I’m miserable. My depression coincides with Mepron use, and when I saw the ingredients, it made sense.
Before I call my doctor (who, like most people, never heard of extreme corn sensitivity and thinks I’m weird and probably delusional) I was wondering if such a thing exists and if anyone has tried it. If it is only available from a compounding pharmacy, I need to call my insurance. They don’t cover the compounding fees and I’m afraid of what Mepron will cost out of pocket (the bottle from the pharmacy says $1300)
