My LLMD does not use doxy with Atovaquone ... certainly it is not a combo he has even put me on, he uses macrolide antibiotics with Mepron usually.

My LLMD has me on doxy while on Mepron.

This is important.
I think I found what I'm looking for. So for all those taking Tetra/Doxy with Mepron including myself, please take a look at these links. Apparently, atovaquone levels are reduced by 40% with Tetra/Doxy.
