His doctor wants to remove the Azithromycin from his treatment & add COARTEM along to Atovaquone & Doxycycline. Has anyone been on this combo and if so please provide feedback. I'm a little worried about an overload of the anti-malarials.
Yes! This was my latest protocol- Atovaquone (which I’ll call Mepron bc it’s easier to write) + Coartem + Doxy + Biaxin.
However, I never made it far enough to add the Coartem. My insurance doesn’t cover it completely so I just used Artemisinin instead. Doxy is messing with my gut big time so I’m going to go off that for a rest. And I’m sensitive to the corn-based sweetener and thickener in Mepron so I’m switching to Malarone.
So I’m not going on that exact combo, but that WAS prescribed to me by my doctor, so if you can handle it, I’d say go for it. Babs is a beast, I’ve made the most improvements overall while focusing on it. If I wasn’t sensitive to the Mepron and the doxy didn’t tear me up so much, I would have done that protocol.
Once I get squared away with my doc, I will be on Malarone + Coartem, then add in the rest when my gut gets healed.
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.
