Not 1st line : Lyme disease is normally treated with Doxycycline or rocrphin depending on stage of the disease. Mepron (atovaquone) is normally used for babesia. It is sometimes prescribed for Lyme disease but is not a first line treatment. It is also not the recommended treatment by the American college of rheumatology. Common side effects of Mepron (atovaquone) include stomach problems, sweating, a funny taste, dizziness.
