My experience with Babs tx which for me was mepron Zith & Artemisia was that I backslid a few times and it was not the cyclic cycle of Lyme but this long drawn out plateaus and dips and feeling like I had lost all gains over & over until finally one plateau didn't go away AT LONG LAST!!!!!!!!! (Was on Mepron 2 years!!) But has been 6+ years since with no resurgence of symptoms whatsoever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So it worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been on Malarone since April 24th., so little over two months. I am only on 1 a day along with 250 of Zithro. What are you on?
When I first started it did clear up some of my symptoms- feeling like I could not breath, short
of breath, brain frog. It is has been really up and down these two months. Some days I feel
really good, and think I am getting better, then the next day I feel bad again. Sometimes it is hard to tell what symptoms go w/ what. I still
get night sweats and hot flashes which is babs. I do not know about the bugs getting resistant
to the Malarone. I am wondering if me being on 1 day is making them resistant, maybe a higer dose would be better. By taking the Zithro w/ the Malarone is supposed to help w/ this, but who knows?

Thank you for posting this. I began treatment after finding a tick and seeing a Lyme rash, so I definitely had Lyme. After treating it for a while, my LLMD figured out that I was still demonstrating symptoms and they looked like babs, so he started me on Malarone and Biaxin. I had a nasty herx -- I'd never had that before -- and then I started to see major improvement. I have felt great for 2 months. Now I'm feeling some symptoms creep back esp the headache/neckaches. I was very very anxious. But hearing that others have had a similar experience makes me feel so much better. My next apptmt is next week, so hopefully my LLMD will have something to say about all this....
I'm going to ask him about artemesia or whatever it's called.
