Hi,

I have numerous allergies and finally found a drug for Babesia that will work for me based on non-conventional testing. I think the testing is called biomeridian or energy testing. I was skeptical about it at first, but it was right on the money with all my allergies (found out through conventional testing: RAST, Sublingual, Skin tests).

Anyway,I have severe sensitivities to drugs, but we found one that would work. It is called Alinia. Now my insurance is denying it saying they reviewed my drs. request, but there was not enough info to show that I had tried and failed or had an adverse reaction to the other drugs on the preferred drug list.

Any ideas on how to get this approved? It is very expensive. I heard it is $700-800 per month. I needed a 21 day supply.

I have reactions to Art or else I'd try it.

Kayda

How is Alinia different than Tindamax or Flagyl?

Most malaria drugs can be purchased from a travel doctor.

What is a travel doctor?

I'm not sure how Alinia differs from the other drugs. I am allergic to the other drugs. Alinia was one that would work for me.

hi kayda,

i believe a travel doctor is one who provides vaccinations for long trips, i.e., overseas

Their specialty keeps up to date on epidemics, endmic areas and immunizations for geographical regions.

unfortunately they do not have the scoop on Lyme
