I've been on biltricide and albenza for one course so far- I've herxed so bad, uncontrollable all day shaking, dizziness, foggy head and the scariest one AIR HUNGER AND HEART PALPITATIONS

I have bart, babs, and lyme and treating for 3 years. I know a babs herx causes air hunger but I'm off those meds now to tackle parasites.

This air hunger thing is scary, it seems to get worse when I lay down, and I'm scared I'm not going to wake up.

I've dealt with some many symptoms, I just hope this is part of some great big herx.

Any suggestion greatly appreciated!!!!

I took bentonite clay when I did parasite cleanses to absorb toxins.

If you're better upright than lying down, maybe sleep propped up on pillows. I had to do that once in a while. Is it any better lying on your side?

You aren't on both at the same time right?

I could not tolerate biltricide. My LLMD heard at a conference (quite some time ago now) that it may hit lyme as well as parasites. When I got so sick on it I stopped and called my LLMD. He took me off it and put me on albenza.

Albenza made me sick too (swollen liver and other symptoms) so I worked my way up to the required dose very slowly.

I did not have air hunger from biltricide or albenza. If you are off babs meds it could be a babs flare. Babs came roaring back when I went off babs meds.

My suggestion would be to call your doctor and get their advice.

You need to start biltricide with 1/4 of a tablet.

You can do another round after six weeks with 1/2
later 1 and 1.5 up to two.

I needed 4-6 lemons a day.

It is also normal that you need to sit in your bed.

Bt for now I would stop and wait six weeks till you restart.
It is hitting something for sure.

I took biltricide first 2 tablets 3x a day then next day albenza for three days, waited 2 weeks then repeated.

I'm on the last round of albenza. It sounds like I'm putting a lot in my body. I just want it over with.

I have to get back to my babs AnD BART TREATMENT.

I'm so tired of this all. Will it ever end?

I know how you feel. It feels never ending.

I got that air hunger type feeling several times when I was taking Ivermectin & Pyrantel Pamoate.

I never had it as a babesia symptom or during babesia treatment.

Weird. Expect the unexpected with these diseases!
