I have been on Zithromax and Plaquenil for 5 weeks and all of a sudden I keep having panic attacks (delayed from stress earlier in the day) which include sinus pressure, head pressure, feelings of dread, cold sweats, memory loss (the scariest part), ringing in the ears. I do have anxiety issues but not normally like this. I'm also on Lexapro.

I've herxed before but it never was this delayed. Has anyone ever herxed after being on a medication for over a month?

I took a xanax and it went away a little bit. But the confusion, memory loss, cognition issues and general uneasiness really freaked me out.

Hi sweetie, I've missed you!

Are you still taking the magnesium and fish oil?
You may need some of the other things for your liver, too.

Acetyl l-carnitine
Alpha lipoic acid
Undenatured whey
Milk thistle

Aww! I missed you too. Things have been crazy. I quit my job and now work for myself, it's kind of awesome. I'm also getting married in about a month. Time is flying by!

I have been taking my supplements. Honestly I just think that I'm sick or have some sort of sinus infection. This current relapse seemed to have started in my sinuses. I have no idea what is going on. I'm so foggy.

I was so freaked out last night, I honestly thought I might have had a small seizure.

My DD was on zith for quite a while and then started having horrible issues just overnight. Severe head pressure was one of her symptoms. She still has issues from it after being off of it for three years. It really did a number on her. She also had ringing in the ears but it went away after stopping the zith.

--------------------
symptoms since 1993 that I can remember. 9/2018 diagnosed with Borellia, Babesia Duncani, and Bartonella Hensalae thru DNA Connections.
