    I bought capsules - a random brand on amazon that seemed to have reasonable reviews for people taking for malaria prevention etc.
    Honestly, I'm not sure how safe it is.

    It seems impossible to buy this in the UK. Looking at the amazon USA website it is sold as a health supplement by many big-brands and easy to get as tablets. Nothing in the UK, I wonder if it is banned. Also are the health supplements tablets in the USA the same thing as the prescription drug called Artemisinin??

    Artesunate is a prescription treatment while artemisinin is available non prescription. Both are anti-parasitic treatments used for rosacea.

    That is too bad it isn't available in the UK through Amazon. You might ask a seller in the USA if shipments to the UK are available which will obviously cost you more. Non prescription artemisinin is obviously less strength than prescription artemisinin.

    I've been taking sweet wormwood for 1 wk and yeah, I do find it helpful. I notice immediate results from 1 pill which is nice. It feels like an antibiotic. Smoother skin, help with nose flushing/burning (instant!), facial pressure/tightness, cheeks not as hot at baseline, less itch. These are the exact same things I noticed with flagyl (which is very good for rosacea pathology). Side effects (for flagyl and sweet wormwood each): pins/needles, fatigue/brain fog.
    Again, I don't know how safe it is

    Keep us posted how you are doing in the weeks to come. How much did you purchase? A month's supply? Post in a month if that is the case. It would be helpful.
