can Flagyl help with Babesia?
Hi all, wondering if you have come across information indicating that flagyl can treat babesia at the same time it's treating Lyme.  I understand it's also a antiparasitic, so not sure if that counts.  If anyone knows or has heard their LLMD mention this please let me know.  I just took my first dose of Flagyl, keeping my fingers crossed that I see some fantastic results!  I have a feeling my babesia might be coming back and I'm taking Omnicef and Flagyl, no other antiparasitics at this point.  
Thanks,
Ally

Different docs use different combinations of meds, so there is no absolute right/wrong on these things.

I was on:

  -- Mepron (generic: atovaquone) and Zithromax (azithromycin) for Babesiosis;

then I was on:

  -- Biaxin (clartihromycin) and Omnicef (cefdinir) for Lyme.

However, I have seen references in various places online to Flagyl being used against babesia.  If you search "babesiosis flagyl" you'll find what I did.

Take care!
