I’m not sure if it will work for Babesia -
I think both Plaquenil and Dapsone may be somewhat effective on Babs - will it be enough though?
Anti-folates (eg trimethoprim, proguanil) are often used for babesia. I assume dapsone would work also. These drugs also tend to hit borrelia.
Have you considered doing a PCR test (eg dnaconnexions) to identify the pathogens, rather than just throwing darts in the dark?////////////////////////////////////////////////
Bactrim is usually paired with something - ie Mepron or Malarone to treat Babs.
Who you asking ? Mike ?
Just know that with a pcr - a negative result won’t tell you anything - only the positives will.
Could be false negatives.
I had a positive bart test after over a year of treatment with Rifampin.
It can be helpful to test when you get a positive
Treating again second time around with Rifabutin and herxing.
