Does anyone get really bad dizziness from taking Malarone? Is it a side effect or a herx reaction and how do you deal with it? Dramamine? I was fine the first week or so taking it but now its pretty bad.

Treating babesiosis can make babs flare (symptoms get worse). So, since babs can cause dizziness, this could be a flare.

Flares can happen once per week or every 4-6 days, etc. Read about it in Burrascano.

Google malarone side effects and you will see that dizziness can also be a side effect of the med. For example, see this site:

http://www.drugs.com/sfx/malarone-side-effects.html

So, both things could be causing it. Drink plenty of water with lemon squeezed into it to detoxify yourself.

Also, are you taking artemesinin with the Malarone? Once I added that, my weekly flares went down to almost nothing.

Burrascano says art should be added to babs treatment in all cases.

GINGER CAPSULES can help relieve nausea and dizziness. But it needs to be kept up at a therapeutic dose that only the capsules seem to provide. Although the tea can help a bit.

Take Ginger Capsules a couple hours away from Rx. It has some antioxidant properties and it may speed Rx through too fast if taken at the same time.

GINGER

-------------------------
There are some homeopathic sublingual pellets, too, that can ease discomfort instantly (great for flying).

Tabacum

Cocculus

QUINOA FLAKES are great to have on hand. Just add boiling water to a deep bowl or mug. Cover. Wait a minute and you have an emergency meal, of sorts for a tender tummy.

Surprisingly good ratio of protein & fat, too, so this is not going to adversely affect blood glucose.

Also:

DGL (search site below under Licorice),

Slippery Elm, Marshmallow Root powder
