I recently changed from Zith to Biaxin and noticed a day into it, major anxiety, which is something I haven't recently had a lot of.

Will this eventually go away if I work slow into it, or should I look at other alternatives? What would my alternatives be?

Anyone has any good information on adrenal support BTW? Maybe I need some work in this dept?

Thanks all!

I found that Biaxin made my heart race within an hour of taking it. I did not feel anxious so much as racy and wired. I could not sleep on the nights I took it in the evening.

For adrenal support, you may want to look at the Stop the Thyroid Madness website. They are very focused on adrenals. Also, there is an adrenal support group on Yahoo.

Are you on any psych meds?

Here's a reference:



``Safety of Psychotropics with Clarithromycin



Clarithromycin is among the most widely used macrolide antibiotics. It is metabolized via the cytochrome P450 pathway and may cause neurotoxicity when used with other drugs that are also metabolized via CYP450, including many psychotropic agents. A systematic review of the literature was undertaken to highlight the neurotoxic effects.



Cases of clarithromycin-associated neurotoxicity in adults (n=38) reported between 1994 and 2009 were reviewed. Mean patient age was 51 years, and 53% were female. The antibiotic had been prescribed for respiratory infection in most patients (58%). Eleven patients had received no concomitant drug therapy, while 13 (34%) had a comorbid psychiatric illness and had received fluoxetine; lithium; carbamazepine; paroxetine; diazepam; haloperidol; benzodiazepines; mirtazapine; or imipramine. After the addition of 500-2000 mg/day clarithromycin, delirium developed in 12 patients (32%), acute psychosis in 11 (29%), mania in 10 (26%), hallucinations in 3 (8%), and serotonin syndrome and a major depressive episode in 1 patient each (2%). Onset occurred a mean of 5 days after clarithromycin initiation. The interaction did not appear to be dose-related, as only 2 of the patients received high-dose clarithromycin (2000 mg/day). Outcomes appear to be good with early detection and prompt discontinuation of clarithromycin. All patients in this series recovered after stopping clarithromycin, most within 1-3 days.



Bandettini di Poggio M, Anfosso S, Audenino D, Primavera A: Clarithromycin-induced neurotoxicity in adults. Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 2011;18 (March):313-318. From the University of Genoa, Italy; and other institutions. Source of funding not stated. The authors did not include disclosure of potential conflicts of interest.

Drug Trade Names: carbamazepine-Epitol, Tegretol; clarithromycin-Biaxin; fluoxetine-Prozac; haloperidol-Haldol; imipramine-Tofranil; mirtazapine-Remeron; paroxetine-Paxil''

Susie - I am not on an Psych meds...

365 - Yeah wired is definitely what I felt. I could not sleep and had crazy fatigue. I am still feeling a little off, however sleep is better. I still don't feel myself with any energy.

Thanks for the time
