Hydroxychloroquine suspension Oct images of plaquenil toxicity Hydroxychloroquine tuberculosis Plaquenil is a weaker antimalarial for babesia compared to mepron, malarone and coartem. usually you don't see an LLMD prescribe it for babesia but for its more well known benefits being an anti-inflammatory and drying out bacteria allowing the abx's/herbs you're taking to better penetrate and be more effective. Because I have not been able to make myself try Lariam, my LLMD came up last month with Clindamycin and Plaquenil for me to try. He said he's had several patients with babesia using that combo. He warned me about the need to use Florastor, Theralac, etc. which I already use, and I said OK. Babesia, like malaria, is a parasite that jumps inside the red blood cells, the difference from malaria is that "our" Babesia bugs jump in pairs and even three of them inside one same red globule, meaning its two or three times worse than malaria. In the US and other places of the world still some consider Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) for treating malaria and the herb “Artemisin” or Artemisinin is the new way to treat – not very well accepted in my home country because the results are not as expected; they really deal with this disease every day and have been treating it successfully for so many years- but again that is another discussion, point here is Babesia. Babesia is a very deteriorating condition and affects humans all over the US. If not treated the malaria goes to the brain and then kills, but I’ve seen people recovering in a week after their brains were already infected.

I wonder if this combination would help for the scleroderma and at the same time for the Babesia? Hi Claudia, I don't have sclero, but as Kim mentioned, it probably won't matter the diagnosis, as the treatment will be the same for babesia. 😉 DOXYCYCLINE/PLAQUENIL - SO CONFUSED! - Road Back Foundation. TREAT BABESIA WITH ANTHELMINTICS NOT ANTIMALARIALS II, learned after.. Babesia Testing and Treatment – Suzy Cohen suggests ways to heal.. Mar 24, 2012 Your book has become my bible, as I frequently refer to it. My practitioner told me about this new treatment for babesia symptoms. I am currently taking artemisinin and plaquenil. This combination, along with clarithromycin seems to be helping, however can you tell me if cryptolepis is more effective? Can Plaquenil be used successfully to treat Babesia instead of Mepron or Lariam? I was on Mepron and became extremely depressed. My doctor replaced it with Lariam, but after reading the side effects, Psychosis and in some cases suicide, I am scared to even try it. Plaquenil is an antirheumatic drug that helps to modulate an overstimulated immune system and decrease pain and inflammation. It also shown effective in hitting cystic forms of Borrelia burgdorferi and alkalizing the intracellular compartment making antibiotics more effective.
