My LLMD doesn't know and I have not been able to find any studies online that meet these criteria.

I have a lot of Rabeprazole and Omeprazole left over from past prescriptions and can buy some Esomeprazole if I need it.

Oh man, levaquin didn't help your derealization or brain fog? That sucks dude I was hoping it might help mine. How long did you take it for?

Thanks, yeah I made it back to school but my house still has no power and my car is damaged due to flooding [Frown]

I took Protonix. I think the generic name is Pantoprazole.

It's what my LLMD uses with bartonella treatment.

I only took it for about 3 weeks and i got really scared of it because i heard some horror stories about it. Plus it started affecting my tendons.

Other people have done really well on it though. Hopefully it helps you tho. I think im going to be trying Rifampin to treat the bartonella.

I will say the the levaquin did help some when i was on it for a short time but unfortubately the derealization has never gone away.

Anyways , sorry to hear about your car man. Glad that your okay though.

Sorry to hijack this thread-but didn't get much clarification when posted about this yesterday....do you guys swallow the PPI and Levaquin at the same time? Or should they be spaced apart???

Am confused about this...can't recall what I did during my first round of this 2 years ago!
Thanks.
