    I am about to take quinine in case I have a babesia coinfection. I have been kind of reluctant lately after seeing that it is regarded as less safe than the other antibiotics that I have been taking for lyme.

    I would be interested in hearing about side effects, reactions, herxes, or positive experiences.

    I am pretty sensitive to herxheimer reactions, so should know pretty quickly after starting if it is effective or not.

    Thanks, Bob

    I will only have to take 324 mg quinine once a day for 10 days, and then after 10 days take them again.

    Also I wonder if the symptoms I experience are revversible after I have taken the drug.

    that's awful that your daughter lost her hearing trying to get by with this crazy disease. Do her symptoms seem reversible? What kind of doses and for how long has she been taking them?
