Sorry for this really silly question but artemisinin is different to artesunate?
Do you know why you shouldn’t be on it for long?
Yes they are different - there are several derivatives/constituents not a silly question
Artemisia - whole herb
Artemisinin - active constituent of artemisia
Artesunate - even stronger than artemisinin
Dihydroartemisinin - stronger
Artemether- Lumefantrine is a combo med that some llmd’s prescribe.
I think only Artemisia and Artemisinin are the only ones you can get without a prescript
Although there was a Zhang product that contained either the Artesunate or dihydroartemisinin
What you’re taking is Pharma right?
