Hi All--

this is my 3 week update on my Primaquine and
Chloroquine treatment --

This is the second time I have taken this-

The first time my body temp was 89F for 35 hours
my hart was beating about 300 bpm -

I Seriously thought I might die any second
for about 5 days --

Then things smooth out and my babs was
Much Decreased -

I took the Chloroquine for 5 days
and the Primaquine for 30 days --

After about 2 more months of my regular
Babs treatment I was Feeling Great --
Zero symptoms --

I told my LLMD that she could take on
a new person to fill my place --

Then about 5 days after talking to my LLMD
I got bit again by a tick and had a
big bullseye on my elbow --

I got Very Sick again Quickly --
Im sure I got infected with Babs -Lyme-
and maybe Bart -

I took High doses of ABX for 4 months or so -I started feeling perty good again --

Then my Mepron supply was getting low so
I decided to take Fill the remainder of
my Primaquine - Chlorquine script --

The treatment is 5 days of Chloroquine -
and take ONE Primaquine a day for 30 days -

On day 4 of treatment I was herxing Perty Bad -
Not even close to the Herx I had the
first time tho -

after 2 weeks I started feeling perty Good again

Now at 3 weeks I have Zero Babs symptoms -
It did make me Very Dizzy and my ears are
Ringing but Not to bad --
My vision is perty Fuzzy -

Over all I feel Perty Good -

My body temp is perty steady around 97F -
Blood pressure and heart beat are normal -

My pee has mostly gone to normal color
and dose not smell as bad as normal with Babs-

The Primaquine comes in bottles of 100-
about $90 - so I am going to take it
for the next 60 days --

Chloroquine comes in bottles of 25 -
cost about $100 --

I am also drinking 1 liter of Tonic Water a day-
Schweppes brand -- It has more Quinine in it
then the cheap brands because Quinine has gotten
Very expensive in the last 8 months --

It tastes Horrible -- but you got to do what
you got to do to get well again -

Also it is best to take Doxi also with this medicine according to the WHO info I read-

I have only taken 1 tsp of Mepron last week-
and have taken None sense --

I think the First time that I took the
Primaquine and Chloroquine it had Alot to
do with my recovery before I got Bit Again --

I dont know if this treatment is going to be
the Silver Bullet but it could be--

The Cure rate for Malaria is around 90% --
If relapse occurs a Second treatment is done
and it has even Higher success rate --

So Maybe this could work ---

I will update you all on further results-

More info can be found by Googling
-- WHO Primaquine Chloroquine --

It sure would be Nice if this works--Jay--
