    Hi Guys

    I am starting the mepron and azithromycin combo for babesia. Under a LLMD. I'd like to hear what other's experience of mepron has been - in terms of its side-effects. Yes, I've done the reading, but would also like to get a sense of how other have managed their treatment.

    Please don't post a response if you are simply passing an opinion on whether or not TBD is a real phenomenon, or to scold me for trying to treat it. I am already familiar with those viewpoints, and have made my decisions carefully, and I believe, rationally.

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Sian

    Interested to see how you go.
    is there a particular treatment length for this?

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the luck. The intention is that I am on this a good few months. I feel like I've been run over, but I guess that's par for the course.

    I got a little anxiety from it but tolerated it pretty well otherwise.

    Wishing you luck!!

    No side effects. I think it helped my muscle pain. Had to stop when insurance stopped paying for it.

    Thanks guys. Added the Azithromycin yesterday. Still have the artemisinin to add yet. I am weaker, sweatier, and the day before yesterday, badly brain-fogged, but so far, so good.
