An update on my progress. I’m now taking all of Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine), Akamin (minocycline) and Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). 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.
