does anybody have extreme irritability that comes with lyme where you act without thinking because my personality has made a complete 360 flip around for the worse

because I'm on depakote 250 mg for panic disorder and bipolar but I almost feel like the meds arent maintaining my moods like they're not effective

so can lyme block the meds from working when it attempts to level out the brain chemicals when it's already invading the receptor

or maybe my doctor needs to fine tune my cocktail again and search for a better solution because this brain fog if it's lyme indeed just is awful cuz I feel like I'm a vegetable most of the day because I just can't think

(breaking up the post for easier reading for many here)

Drugs can deplete us of so many vital nutrients and minerals.

Here is one thought:

My opinion is you haven't found the treatment yet that's going to help.

Also, have you had your thyroid levels checked? I couldn't think very well and found out I was low thyroid, went on Armour thyroid, and could think again.

We're all different, so we have to discover what's going to work for us.

To explain more of what Robin was speaking of..

Here's what you must have you doctor test for when it comes to the thyroid:

TSH
Free T4
Free T3
Reverse T3
TPO & TgAB

Don't just tell the doc to test thyroid because I would guarantee, he would test only TSH and you would have no answers from that.

Thyroid is extremely important when one has Lyme & co, for it's known to attack the thyroid. If your thyroid hormones aren't optimal, you are spinning your wheels and are very ill.

I know you have an insurance problem. This is just one more thing that is covered by Medicaid that you can have tested.

There are many things that Medicaid and Medicare cover that may get you some answers and help you feel somewhat better.

This will sound weird, but here goes...

When in that situation I would sometimes go to my chiropractor and tell him to "make me nice again".

And he would! Almost instantly!

There is an adjustment for this situation. I wouldn't have never believed it till I saw it work- multiple times.

BUT- you must tell them about it! It's not a "routine" adjustment.

Is it your C1 atlas vertebra? It definitely affects thinking and mood. I get a lot nicer after that adjustment...almost think I don't have Lyme anymore. Ha.

yes, I was a beast before any treatment. like really beastie. It went away 100% after initial treatment and is now back slightly with my bart (? or babs (?) sxymptoms that have returned.

were you checked for these 2 coinfections? my son was getting really creepy weird before his treatment too.

Not sure this will work but it is only 10.- (plus shipping if order just that) and has no known side effects

may wish to check with your doc to see if it can interfere with anything you are taking

Inositol - at 12 to 18 g per day - that is at about 2 scoops - scoop comes with bucket

https://www.swansonvitamins.com/swanson-premium-pure-inositol-powder-8-oz-227-grams-pwdr

it has been shown, in controlled studies, to be as good as prescription drugs for OCD and has helped me with Lyme symptoms (a lot)

it is a B-vitamin precursor? you can look it up and read more

it is pleasantly sweet and easy to take

took 3-4 days for me to work and when I stopped, took 2-3 days to get symptoms back - how you react may depend on your level of need for this

may be worth a try

kevin1983, definitely let your doctor know how you are feeling. It can take time to find the right med combination.
