Whenever I stop taking my antibiotics I feel better.  I suffer from many psysical and psychological symptoms from lyme but whenever I stop taking my antibiotics even for a day I feel so much better, especially psychologically.  I have been on treatment for 9 months.  Are the antibiotics making me feel bad or is the die off of bacteria making me feel bad?

Hi mta43782lyme.  KeepHope asked a similar question.

How long have you been sick?  Do you have co-infections?  It is normal to feel worse before feeling better, and it can take time.

I have copied and pasted my response to KeepHope because I think it applies to you also.   Are you taking anything for inflammation?  Are you doing things to strengthen your immune system such as eat healthy, drink a lot of water, exercise whenever possible, taking appropriate supplements, detoxing, and getting enough rest? 

Have you talked with your doctor about this?

keep hope, this lyme thing is very confusing.  I don't believe that anyone really knows the ins and outs of it.  You are stronger willed than i am.  I do not watch my diet and i have not tried any detox methods.  I strictly take doxy, biaxin, probiotics, and a supplement that is supposed to increase serotonin called 5htp.  When i stop taking antibiotics I do not feel perfect but i do feel much better.  I feel like I need to keep on the treatment plan to beat this thing but the truth is I could live with my symptoms when i am not on antibiotics but life is a real struggle while taking them.  I see my LLMD in 2 weeks I let you know what he says about this.
