I'm wondering if anyone has heard of pulsing malerone and how effective it is in the treatment of babesia? How much do you take and how often do you pulse. Does it work?

Thanks!

When I took malarone (two treatments thus far) I didn't pulse it.

Now on mepron and it is 3 weeks on with one week off.

Maybe the same rationale.

Hugs,

Geneal

I guess you could since it builds up in your system, at least the mepron part of it does.

Hi guys,
I had the same question. I was reading Dr. Singleton's 'Lyme Disease Solution' and he recommends the 3 weeks on, 1 week off regimen for malarone (with zithromax on all the time). I tried going off it at the end of week 4 and I came crashing down (much worse than before) in just a couple of days, so I had to go back on it. Now on my sixth week and my liver is very unhappy - I have liver pain and my bilirubin was way over range even as of week 3. Just went to the lab to get a liver function panel done. I was wondering what is the point at which you absolutely have to stop? Is it high ALT/AST or until you can't keep any food down? I've switched to a carb-centric/no sugar/low protein diet and it's been helping a little. Any advice would be great. Thanks you all and best for the weekend.

Cheers,
GL

I pulse Mepron for 3 weeks on and 1 week off. The week off is horrible.

Since that post in April of 2008, my LLMD and I discussed the pulsing issue.

We did mepron after that without pulsing.

I believe that really helped.

Hugs,

Geneal
