... Hi Happycamper, you could have Babesia, which is related to malaria. Doing just doxy is not enough. If you have babeisa, then you need med for that. If you have Borrelia (Lyme) then you need to be treated with more than just doxy. There are 3 life stages to the bacteria, the newbie, the adult and the ones that create a cyst around themselves. My best advice to you is... (1 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)
... It is also effective in killing babesia. ... (34 replies)
... Zithromax can cause a fatal form of psuedomembraneous colitis. If you are also getting stabbing pains in the gut, this is probably what is going on. This happened to me when I first attempted to take Zith in high dose. My dr said stop ALL antibiotics for a few days and give your gut time to recover. You need to be on good quality probiotics at all times when taking... (15 replies)

... roblems started. My husband said, no more flagyl ever. I agree that when you have had it this long and it is so embedded in your body especially in your brain, killing it fast won't work. ... (122 replies)
... ted. Also I have completed 2 3wk treatments of mepron. I took it twice a day. I was told that was not enough. I was also told it is about as hard to get the babesia as the lyme.

... Some Lyme folks I met told me that my bruise looking rashes are from Babesia. I tested negative for Babesia but it may be worth taking an antimalarial, just to see what happens. ... (13 replies)
... Dear Mickie, I'm sorry to hear you are feeling so bad! I do hope that you'll give the pills a rest for 3-7 days. The specialist I see says that if you have a bad herx you need to give the medicine a rest for a few days until you start to feel a little bit better. The critters have a slow growth rate, so a few days off, or even a week won't hurt. I understand that... (15 replies)
