I was on abx for lyme at the same time as mepron. So there was no way to know if the herx was from one or the other. But there was herxs.
My bottle of artmininisin which is a chinese herb for babesia says that you can have increase in your symptoms. So it does sound like you can herx from babesia. I think I remember reading it somewhere too. I also remember the PA at the LLMD's office saying that it can only be killed at a certain time in its cycle. But I don't know the cycle time. I think it is when it is splitting into two. But not sure.
Hope you are seeing some improvement. Hows the sleep, getting up and being ready for conference call at 7:00??? I really do hope you are doing better.
Hi 6Blues. Babesiosis can definitely cause herxes. I have never taken Malarone. Is it taken in conjunction with an antibiotic to treat Babesiosis? I took Mepron and Zithromax and definitely herxed on it.
It seems that the mininum treatment time for Babesiosis (with Mepron and Zithromax or Biaxin or Ketek) needs to be four months or re-treatment is often necessary. I don't know if it is the same with Malarone.
