I would like to take a little xanax (generic)here and there and searched a few good sites on the drug interactions.

Nothing says it will interact with my art, biaxin or mepron.

Any second opinions or do you think it will be ok?

THANKS!

xanax is a life saver for many lyme sufferers.
i read some posts on here that stated one person was able to walk even with the severity of her sx when she took a higher dose of xanax.

there is some connection w xanax, how the brain works, and all the tbds that has yet to be uncovered.

until then, happy dosing. be careful, its very addictive, hence its powerful anti lyme sx properties.

humbly

All drugs can be checked by entering them here and seeing if there are any interactions:

If you still aren't sure, ask your pharmacist.

Take care.

That explains why my brain gave up after I cold-turkeyed my Klonopin. Klonopin was neuroprotective. But I had to appease my doctors who were so concerned I was abusing it, insane, and really starving myself down to 88 lbs - "psychosomatic".

Sorry - I get sick every time I see a post on benzos. It reminds me of what they did to me - and not a single one is required to fix any of what happened.

Lymebytes,

I love your web page that you can enter drugs and check to see what interacts with what. I plugged in everything I am taking and oddly, the only thing that came up was in regards to taking Zith with mepron.

I know most of us take that combination when treating babs and the zith is to help with resistance, but they list that combo as weakening the zith. Probably doesn't matter.

But in another thread, I was warned that I shouldn't be taking doxy with mepron, but nothing came up on this page regarding these two. This is enough to make my head spin since it sounds that when treating lyme, all sorts of combinations are being tossed out there.

Love the link though and have bookmarked it.

Cathy

you guys also may find that a lot of the "NORMAL" lyme contradictions for meds are not sometimes found on the drug digests and such.

lyme patients are in a while nother boat.

tincup in his b12 discussion thread has a lot of useful abx, gerb, witamin interaction suggestions that i have not yet read on drug digest.

Sorry I have been MIA all day!

Just read these posts and I appreciate all the tips and discussion.

Well, I took less than half of a xanax last night and I slept better than I have slept in ages.

I don't even remember any of my usual crazy Biaxin nightmares.

Thanks!
