... Hi, Thanks to all of you who responded. This all seems to have started going downhill since I was taking Ketek in Jan/Feb. Not to knock Ketek, because I do know of some people who have had excellent results with it, but I have to wonder if maybe it wasn't the right thing for me. I'd really thought it was working, but if I look back over my records it all started going... (8 replies)

... Hi Tinuviel: I have been wondering about you, I know that you had been going through a hard time. What are you taking now? Are you still doing Ketek? I remember you had said that it was making you feel like you did in the beginning. I am on Ketek now alone- no combo and I am either back sliding or it is kicking my butt, I can't tell. I hope you get through this... (8 replies)
Ketek Update
Feb 21, 2006
... Hi, Well I'm on month two of Ketek. I really believe this is an effective medicine, I've definitely been herxing. Mostly neuro stuff. That and back to being in bed almost 24-7. About the weirdest thing is symptoms I hadn't had in years flaring up again. And being hypersensitive to everything, it all seems too bright, too loud, too everything. Of course that means...

... too since going back. I am pretty sure he is going to put me on IV. At this point I will do anything to get rid of this sore throat. I was reading up on Ketek the other night and it said when you are on it to expect a prolonged Herx reaction. I guess 7 months is pretty prolonged huh? ... (10 replies)

... 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... (2 replies)
Ketek side effects
Oct 25, 2005
... Hi everyone, As I read through Dr. Crist's protocol I am nearing the end and kind of jumped ahead a little and what he does is after you are symptom free for a certain amount of time he has you go off abx for a specified time and then gives you a huge dose to see if you herx. If I read correctly he actually does this a couple of times to be sure. It sounds reasonable. I... (13 replies)
