    I am sweating buckets, have diarrhea, and am nauseous.

    I'm sure it's due to Malarone as this is day 4 of the next cycle.

    My LLMD mentioned that Dr F (LA) has put 93 Bb patients into remission with Malarone + Zithromax.

    Anyone have any info about this?

    my son just got done doing about 4 or 5 cycles of mepron/zithro, combined with his abx for lyme and flagyl...

    (keeping in mind that his LLMD has always had him doing cycles of 2-3 weeks 'on' meds, 1-2 weeks 'off' to let his immune system recover.)

    It was rough. Altho he didn't get the diarrhea or nausea much..... he definitely felt lousy on it cognitively and physically; but it did get rid of his sweats, which he was having anyway.

    Now he's in a 'wait and see what happens' mode of continuing to still pulse the other abx + flagyl for lyme... to see if he can lengthen the time 'off' between the pulses, and to see what, if any, symptoms remain.

    good luck with it!

    all the best,
    Victoria
