It's usually a co-infection that stalls progress. Candida control is also an on-going effort. Maybe you should periodically add in a course of Diflucan. Nystatin only stays in the gut. I also take a break from the ABX and take Candida Control herbals from NOW brand.
Treat bart first. Many of the meds will also help with Lyme. When you plateau maybe then go after babs. It's a long slow process, and as Bryan Rosner wrote (loosely quoted): "Just because you tried something in the past and it didn't work, doesn't mean it won't work at another time."
I was hitting babs for around 2.5 months with mepron and zithromax and had lots of head pressure so my LLMD wanted me to stop because she thought it was a side effect of the zithromax. I have been off for a couple weeks and she doesn't want me to start anything back up until I get back from Italy in a couple weeks.
Will it be ok to start bart treatment or should I start babs treatment back up right away?
I feel like I should maybe try liquid nystatin for awhile until I don't herx from it any longer and see if my symptoms improve.. I am worried about
putting more antibiotics in my body if I am dealing with a severe yeast infection.
Are yeast infections pretty easy to clear up? If I have a bad one can I knock it out with nystatin and diflucan in a month or two?i was treating Babesia for 7-8 months - Mepron with minocycline and Ceftin (and then switched the third med when I ran out of Ceftin). My head pressure increased immensely. The head pressure is a symptom of Babesia. My head pressure did not increase like that when I was on other antibiotics to treat lyme and bartonella.
If your LLMD thought it was from zithromax - there is an easy way to find out - just stop zithro and take a different antibiotic with the Mepron.
Since you didn't finish your babesia treatment - that's what I would start up again.
How is your head pressure since stopping the Mepron/Zith combo?
