Has anyone had issues with backing off of Mepron?

I was looking to go "every other day" with my abx as I have had an allergic reaction to septra(which I stopped taking immediately).

My LLMD suggested this.

I was taking it with Zithro. Last tsp of Mepron was yesterday morning, and I am feeling symptoms come back already. Vibrations...joint pain...gastro issues...ESPECIALLY after eating lunch today (chicken wrap - no pasta/gluten).

After lunch I decided to go ahead and take my Zithro pill.

any thoughts?

Bill, I would throw artemisinin into the mix. Take 3 [100mg] capsules per-day. It works well with the zith/mep, even if your pulsing the mep.
Art is used for malaria and is effective against babs as well.

Hi Bill
Like Np says the Artemisinin
is Very Important to Take--
You Need to get some--
online $15 amonth

Relaps after stopping mepron
is common--Minium treatment
time is 6 months with Zero
breaks in meds---

I ran out of mepron after 5
bottles and the babs came right
Back---2 Days

Luckily I was told about taking
Bactrim Ds 800/160 for babs--2 aday

I got some and I herxed 3 weeks
the Bactrim has Hammered the
bugs perty hard and I feel the
best I have felt in 20 yrs--
5 weeks of Bactrim so far--

Bactrim is Dirt cheap---
about $30 a month--

The generic is good but the
Name brand (Roche) is 5X stronger--

Try it you will like it--Jay--

Hey...thx Jay and NP...

Unfortunately Bactrim is a sulfa-based drug...and I have become allergic to them. I was taking Septra.

I will order the Artemisinin and will see how that goes.

Thx for your replies!

Bill
