Hi, is there anyone taking coartem for more than 3 days in a row? Anyone out there who repeats the cycles faster than every 11 or more days.

Does your doc use coartem in combination with some antibiotic, malarone or so?

thanks!

I did 7 day pulses with rifampin and doxy. The second round hit like a ton of bricks and took a while to settle but my babs symptoms have not returned and that was over 3 years ago.

I am taking 4 pills twice a day for 3 days with clynda and herbs, 11 day break but during 11 day break do primaquine with clyna, herbs, etc. This is kicking my but I might have to reduce something. I am going to have to call in sick tomorrow.
