    Low WBC


    I see Dr. Crist also. Just complete 30 days of Doxy and my WBC's are 2.5, Lymphocytes 697 and Eosinophils 10. All low. He thinks I maybe need to see at hematologist, but with this coronovirus it may be a ways out to get appt. Dr. Crist wants me to start Clindaymycin and Quinine anyway and I am scared to do that. I have read the side effects of Quinine!! I diagnosed me with a tick-borne illness similar to Lymes. No test for babesius in MO so based on some clinical he wants me to start these new drugs. I am afraid my WBC's will get so low and I will have none to fight virus if I get it. He feels the lyme bacteria contributing to low WBC's.

    Any guidance very much appreciated.

    Hydroxychloroquine has less serious side effects. He may have said quinine in the general sense, not the actual medication? What is written on your rx?
