I'm in the middle of my second week pulsing Mepron along with usual minocyclin and clindamycin, and have been gradually adding in artemisinin (and trying to add Enula). Feeling crummy today. Do you think this is flu or a babs herx? Or side effects? Sx: Fatigue, cough, asthma flare, joint pain and some other musculoskeletal soreness, headache, slightly sore throat, feels like mucus in throat, shaky, mild nausea and lack of appetite. Fwiw, I didn't get much sleep last night so I'm sure that's making it all worse.
Also, is it a problem if I don't take the enula in combination with the Mepron and artemesinin? I think it makes my head feel weird and crawly.
I found the Enula like water...didn't affect me - as far as I could tell.
Those three you are taking are sure to cause herxing. I do think it's a herx.
You can hold off on the Enula if you want for a week.
Are you doing two weeks on of M/W/F and then one week off?
...or one week of M/W/F and one week of M/T/W/Th/F then two weeks off?
