Just curious if Mino. works on Bartonella or any other infection. I have very strong reactions when I have taken it in the past. [Razz]

Yes it will help with coinfections like bartonella, cpn and mycoplasma. It is best if you take it with another med like zith or biaxin, levaquin, or rifampin.

I have Bartonella, CPN and mycoplasma. That could be why Minocycline packs a punch when I take it.

Thank you for your input..very helpful. [Smile]

My experience is that all the -cyclines will slow bart down but not kill it. It seems to require rifampin or the cipro family to kill it.
