I cannot afford my LLMD right now, however I have 2 months left of Azith & Mepron, thank goodness.

I know that I should be taking Artmesia (or Artmesian)..my Lyme brain can't remember, lol

Could somebody guide me on what brand to buy, when/how much to take along with foods/other med's & supps?

Thanks so much!!

If you order the Nutricology brand Artemisinin through The Vitamin Shoppe online, it's even cheaper than ordering it directly from Nutricology.

Thank you for the suggestions. How often am I supposed to take... and with abx?

I cannot digest hardly anything, do they make artemisinin drops?

Blessings

My doc had me take it 2 times per day on an empty stomach. I took it 3 days per week.

I would take it at least 2 hours away from antibiotics, preferably 3 hours AFTER antibiotics so that it has a long time to work.

Antibiotics kill herbs, supplements, probiotics, kefir, yogurt, etc.

I take the whole herb artemesia annua in tincture form. Herb Pharm makes it....they only use highest quality herbs.

(you can purchase via iherb.com)

Just put a few drops in a cup, add a bit of hot water, let it sit for ten or fifteen minutes and then gulp. I'd recommend starting very slowly, as in one or two drops at first.

Hope this helps....

My lyme doc carried the brand he thought was best. I don't remember what that was but don't think we can buy it.

Once, when he ran out, he had me buy AllergyResearchGroup brand. It was 100 mg. You can easily get it.
