OCD

Got sick in 2001 after infection with Mycoplasma, Chlamydia pneumoniae and Epstein-Barr.

Have over the years been diagnosed with ME, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, ADD and OCD.

Started CAP in october 2013.

My OCD/Anxiety has improved the most from CAP.

When i use Flagyl my anxiety gets worse and I have used Flagyl for over a year in total (I pulse)

I also use Minocycline, Azithromycin, rifamicin, Amoxicillin and NAC.

I have a great doctor who help me with prescriptions but I have to do all the research for him. It is hard beeing responsible for your own treatment. When I use flagyl I get so confused and feel like I am not doing it right.

I just wanted to tell my story and see if someone have similar history or suggestion.

Hello Norwegian,

I have a similar reaction re: anxiety but with rifampin. Doctor suggested that it may be due to "mast cell degranulation syndrome". Possible treatments quercitin and zinc. I can't seem to get past 1/4 recommended dose of rifampin without anxiety becoming a big issue. 

Norwegian,

Anxiety--porphyria?

Had to follow the high carb, low fat, low red meat etc.. diet suggestions for porphyria.

Then...bring on the carbs, moppers etc..   This would bring it down to a manageable level.
