Hello! I've been trying to self treat for Babesia with herbs for the past 6 weeks and had decided to go the conventional medicine route so my doctor prescribed Mepron and Zithromax. Now that they are sitting at the pharmacy waiting to be picked up I am chickening out. The side effects really scare me, taking antibiotics in general scares me, and I have read a couple things that lead me to believe they may not work. I'm considering going to a chiropractor that does muscle testing and distributes Byron White instead. Would anyone share their experience with Mepron/Zithro for Babesia? Also, can you take Mepron alone? My LLMD was originally going to only prescribe Mepron but I asked for the Zithro because of reading about resistance without it. Thank you!

I have taken Mepron - and for several weeks with Azithromycin (plus another antibiotic)

I pulsed my meds.

No, it should not be taken alone. Treating lyme and co's should always be done in combinations.

It helped some. I had a few really bad months with head pressure when I was taking the Mepron. The pressure was behind my eyes...and it affected my eyes. Hard to describe.


I ended up with the pulsatile tinnitus fully healed...and my sweats stopped.


but, I'm sweating a little bit again...not much though...so it probably wasn't long enough run on it.
(I was on the Mepron for 7-8 months - don't have my notes in front of me)

But, I wasn't on the azithromycin for the entire time..i switched that up.

i did mepron and zithro for about 7 months, 3 1/2 months each stint back in 2015. Nope it didn't clear by babesia duncani but it did knock it back some.

i've been doing mepron with other abx (you can take others the point is so the babesia doesn't become reisstant to the mepron) for most of 2017 and i can see the end of the tunnel for eradicating it.

for some (like me) babesia has been very hard to eradicate it's taken me combined about 18 months. others its usually much quicker.

zithro/mepron has been a stable for treating babesia for a very long time.
