I've taken Mepron with both Minocycline and Tindamax. I take the Minocycline, on an empty stomach an hour or two away from the Mepron/Tindamax.

I take them together. I still herx.
If you feel like you are not herxing on the Mepron, or that you need a very high dose to herx, I would consider discontinuing the Mino.
You're also not supposed to take Mino with dairy, as the minerals inhibit the absorption.
I have been taking my Mino with yogurt at breakfast for most of my treatment, and I still herx on it.
I'm not saying not to follow your doctor's or pharmacist's instructions. I'm just saying that we know our bodies and what works for us.
I will say this: I need Zith to herx on Mepron. I was taking Plaquenil/Mepron from Oct. - Dec. and I did not herx. I thought my Babs load was too low to have obvious herxing. Wrong! My abx load was too low. Bummer.
Thanks for your PM, Wolfed Out. I owe you a reply.
