I had good results with artimesia anua, or artimisin(a derivative of artimesia anua), in combination with atovaquone. Atovaquone is kind of expensive, as either 'malaone', or 'mepron'. 'Malarone also contans proquinil , which is evidently anoter anti-malarial.

Hi Jay,

I did primaquine last summer for 6 months, it was great, didn't totally eliminate the babs but put a great PUNCH onto the d..... thing.

Before you start make sure your LLMD do some blood work and check for ??????, I can't remember what but some people can't take primaquine because it will cause some severe anemia. Also they need to monitor your CBC, bla-bla-bla- every 2-3 weeks and make sure your liver is handling the meany primaquine pill well.

Best of luck, it helped me a lot, I hope it also does it for you and YES MISSING Liz28 a lot.
