I used it way back in 2013 with little results.

8/16/13 to 9/20/13: Minocycline, Bactrim DS, Alinia, Diflucan
5/23/13 to 8/15/13: Minocycline, Bactrim DS, Tindamax, Alinia

More recently since May 2017 its has been used with Terta, Diflucan, and Oil of Oregano in a 2 week Pulse regimen. starting 2 weeks ON then 2 weeks off, then going to 3 weeks OFF in August, and now trying 4 weeks OFF. Doing pretty good at 95% with some minor long term sx remaining.

Alinia is part of the Klinghardt parasitic protocol and is said to be effective across all three B's. Its very expensive and most insurance plans cover only a limited small amount of pills. The manufacturer has a great $10 copay coupon for the initial first script. Then you pay name brand co-pay rates for refills.

I'm staying with it for a while longer as long as it is partially covered and I can afford it to clean up some remaining Bart and possible Lyme persister issues.

I've done two short rounds of Alinia. It definitely hit my bart the first time (head pressure and vertigo increased a lot). It was rough on my stomach, though. Whether that had anything to do with parasites or just my reaction to the drug, I don't know. I wasn't having any issues that would have suggested a problem with parasites.
