  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Do not take all drugs listed at same time. Am on "pulse therapy" with antimacrobials. Do not take coq10 when on Mepron/malarone. Take Florastor probiotic 2x's a day to fight c.diff & other probiotics. Also take FiberSmart, DigestSmart, & slippery elm, marshmallow root for GI regularity. Drink at least 4 cups green tea daily. CDC confirmed lyme positive in 2010 (September), was bit in May of same year. Had psychiatric & cognitive dysfunction immediately following rash. Further testing show active infection in brain - neuro-lyme dx'd.

    I am taking Metoprolol ER 25mg daily and want to travel to malaria countries such as Burma, Vietnam and East Africa (mission work and adventure travel). Can I take any anti-malarial with the Metoprolol? One doctor told me I could take doxycycline 500mg but it would make me sun-sensitive. Could I safely take malarone?

    Malorone is expensive, but safe. - even in Sunlight, with the least amount of side effects of any other anti Malaria - CDC has complete info and flow chart to help you chose - I have never had a problem with Malorone and travel to east Africa often.

    My dermatologist did not tell me that this is a steroid and while I did say I suffer from severe glaucoma .. metronidazole had still been perscribe to be used twice daily. I have noticed my eyes to be sore and dry. Am concerned.
