I'll be starting Rifampin and Mepron tomorrow. Is Rifampin used mainly to treat Bartonella?

Chronic Triathlete

Yes. That is my understanding, but I would suspect that it has crossover benefits for other bugs.

I just double checked with my LLMD because I thought I wrote it down wrong... he wants me to take Mepron, Zithromax, Rifampin and Diflucan. Holy hell!

Mepron was generally horrible for me when I first started. The taste is really special too.

Good luck!


I believe I can beat your full house with a straight flush: IV Zithro, IV Clindamycin, Mepron, Diflucan, Flagyl, Valtrex, AND Artemisinin. Hope the Rifampin becomes more tolerable. Bart treatment is next for me, can't wait.
