Mepron allergy, side effects, or herx?

Does anyone have an explanation for why I get flushing, heart palpitations, bronchospasm, rapid and slowed breathing for 20 minutes at a time in 4 hour intervals after taking Mepron for babesiosis?
That is, these events occur every four hours and last around 20 minutes. The first event occurs about 45 minutes after taking the drug.

Hi bubbalyme. These sound like Babesiosis symptoms to me. It sounds like the Mepron is targeting the Babesiosis and your symptoms are intensifying.

How long have been on the Mepron and what antibiotic are you taking with it?

I know these symptoms are scary, but it is what happens during treatment. Always let your doctor know what is going on.

Hang in there okay? Over time, it will get better. Visualize all the buggers that are dying from the meds!
