I am coming off of a 4-5day herx that was rough. I thought I was getting on the other side of it yesterday but today I feel like I could jump out of my skin!!!! Anyone else experience this and if so, what, if anything, helped. Thanks. wenan

I am right there with you on this. L-Theanine (check my spelling), the amino acid supplement, has helped alot with herxing anxiety. Feel better!

When I had my first really bad herxes I used to take Xanax. It was the thing that really helped me the most.

i have general anxiety disorder. It doesnt just happen to me when im in a herx. ONLY thing that helps me is Xanax. i DONT take it around the clock...its habit forming, and I also dont recommend taking high doses..a little goes a long way.
I take a quarter of a pill!
Take as needed, they will also give you a peace of mind knowing that youhave them with you. [Smile]
I know the feeling of wanting to jump out of your skin.
Good luck

If it gets intense, which it does especially when I lose sleep, I take a shot of valerian tincture.
