I know you asked mpost but hope you don’t mind if I post.
From what Ive read, Levaquin/Cipro are the most effective for Bart but they do have some serious risks - there’s a black box warning label issued by the FDA - I’m sure you know this.
I don’t know the correct dose.
Actually there’s two B.B. warnings: risk of tendon rupture and peripheral neuropathy (which could be permanent)
The problem is how do you know if it’s a herx when you get a worsening of the neuropathy .. or is it the side effect of the drug?
Maybe add the subject : Levaquin? If you want others input
