An update on my progress. Â I’m now taking all of Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine), Akamin (minocycline) and Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). Â The latter one is relatively new and is to treat the Bartonella co-infection that I have.
I’m not sure if it’s the drugs, the disease or a new herx, but my pericarditis pain is now at new levels and is accompanied with extreme light-headedness to the point of almost losing consciousness.
In addition, I am getting some peeling skin as a side-effect from the Bactrim so I need to reduce its dose.
This disease sucks.
