What has been your experience in taking Alinia? How long did you stay on the drug? Any parasite sightings?? Can it be taken along with babs treatment mentioned in title of this post?

Thanks,
robi

The alinia alone should take care of the parasites,babs,spirochetes according to my doc and his researchers.

They're under the impression that it's "THE DRUG" and report some success with it alone!

However. I believe he's asking too much of one drug for several reasons, I won't go into right now.

I believe I took 100mgs twice a day. I did not take anything with Alinia....as it's supposed to be a cyst buster as well.

Let us know of your,hopeful, progress?

I'll reserve mine for when I feel just wonderful with just alinia.....

has'nt happened for me yet but then again, I'm probably a "special" case with extenuating

circumstances...

I don't believe it's recommended with malarone and biaxin....check with your own llmd....

good luck....

My daughter was given Alinia 500mg twice a day with Levaquin 500mg 4x a day by her LLMD. She is also on Zithromax 4x a day.

She hasn't started it yet, as we are waiting on some test results to see if she is able to detox, so I can't tell you how she is doing on it.

HUGS,

I just started on Alinia this past Friday taking 500mg twice a day and will be on it for 2 to 4 weeks depending on how I respond. I will add in Rifampin and Doxy tomorrow. Obviuosly I haven't been on it long enough to give you much in the way of experiance with it but I will keep you posted and hope to hear what others experiance as well.

Robi,

Call your Pharmacy and ask about the drug interactions. Ours is wonderful about things like that.

you can always ask your friendly pharmacist what will interact with

what, even IF the DUCKS or even the llmd's forget what you might be taking....I always

check whenever I get any new meds....so should everyone.!

BTW-I WAS taking 500mgs twice a day as well.

Did you look that up? the 1000 mgs twice a day and for how long?
