When I've been on treatment before-rocephine- I herxed real bad. I experienced for the first time Lyme rage

and manic behavior. Then became very depressed, so I was put on Zyrexa which helped alot.

I am not on treatment right now but friday,sat.,and sun. I was very depressed. Then on mon. I was ok.

But Tues. I was in full blown manic. I was running around the house like a chicken with my head cut off, talking a mile a minute...ect..

So, my question is has anyone exoerience this type of behavior without being on abx?

My llmd is starting me on a year treatment of abx. Today will be my first dose of it...unless I can convince her to wait till after this weekend.

She will have me do a shot everyday of penicillin for a while to see how my body reacts to that, then add something to it.

In the past I've had terrible experiences with treatments, so she said she doesn't want to shock my body...

My stomache just can't handle pills to well, not even vitamins. I try and take vit. anyway.

I take Lyme Disease Complete--actually it's called LD Complete--when I can handle it I feel sooo much better.

Anyway,I'm rambling.....back to my question. Has anyone had manic behavior or really anything strange while not on abx?

Thanx, Jamie

Before I was dx'd, I had a lot of ups and downs. My official psychiatric dx was borderline personality disorder. Now that I'm being treated, it's only happened twice. Those episodes were early in my treatment. Most of my emotional stuff is gone since starting abx.

I've been off my doxy for a couple of weeks now because I had to be in the southern sun for 3 days straight last weekend. I started feeling the old anxiety and frustration rolling back in about Wednesday of last week.

You can have psychophysiological problems with and without treatment. Once you start treatment, it seems like these come back hard when you're off of it. Yes, we've probably all experienced this type of behavior without treatment because this is one of the many symptoms and a lot of us we're undiagnosed and misdiagnosed for a long time. My whole nervous system was out of whack before treatment and it still is now, but to a lesser degree.

You said,
"My llmd is starting me on a year treatment of abx. Today will be my first dose of it...unless I can convince her to wait till after this weekend."

Why would you have to convince anyone when you want to start taking medicine? That sounds silly.

It sounds like you're questioning whether or not you should go on antibiotics by looking at the pros and cons. This is good because it takes a lot of committment to ride the ups and downs. The only thing I remember is complete instability before treatment. Doxycycline was the best medicine for my mood/psychological behavior.
