Since getting to 100 mg 2x/day I've experienced extreme increase in weight loss, tension, anxiety, crying jags, jittery, sleeplessness.

What gives?

Every treatment isn't for everyone. Did you talk to your doctor about it?

It just seems different from other herxes I've had. Maybe bart herxes have a bad CNS effect. Ugh
Tough to say.

Good question, does minocycline hit bartonella as well as lyme? Are you on only minocycline?

I also cannot take 100 mino twice a day. Even 100 doxy a day is only possible for 3 -4 days.

I had to go slow on mino at first. Only 50-100mg the first couple of months, then I started pulsing at 200mg 5-10 days at a time. Now I'm at 200mg full time and added another antibiotic in as well.

I didn't think it worked for bart, but I'm not sure.
