I felt as if some micro bubbles were bursting in my chest area, but it was nothing severe. Just pop, pop, pop here & there in the chest. I did show high titers of mycoplasma pneumoniae. They could not tell me if it was an active infection or a past one though.


I did not get a herx or anything else though & I can't say it was specifically coartem that helped me during that time, because I received a number of new meds at the same time. The new combo got me better for a few months & then I slid down the slippery slopes of Lyme entrenched regression.

I have done a few rounds of Coartem, but I did not notice any difference from taking it. I had a severe case of Babs, so I don't know if that is why.

Don't worry too much. I hope it helps you!
