One of the co-infections that ticks can give is called Babesia. Some call it Babesiosis. I call it a pain in my sweat glands. Until recently, we didn't think Babesia was a problem. Then, we realized Babesia was one of the many cocktail of things that the tick gave to me. As soon as my hero said the words, I knew the word to follow would be Mepron.
I do not know how my body is going to react, but I am terrified of this yellow medicine. I was to start today. I typically plan a start date and if a medicine worries me --- I wait and wait and wait. BUT, my symptoms have been so bad lately that I knew waiting was not an option. So --- today --- 15 minutes ago actually, I took my first 5 ML's of YELLOW PAINT.
Honest Opinion: Initial taste wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. The aftertaste packed a punch, but not nearly as bad as Zithromax. With Mepron, we are supposed to eat FATTY foods. So I ate pizza (hello fatty foods!) and after I took my 5ML dose -- I ate a peanut bar. The remainder of the taste isn't in my mouth anymore. Now I just wait and see. At least I got the first dose out of the way, but that doesn't mean I'm not still scared.
