CajunGrl,
     Hi Again. What do you consider a high dose of vitamin C and are you currently still taking it? I take about 20Gr. of vitamin C daily and have been for months and do believe I have herxed on it but, continue to take it.

I take 1000mg daily in pill form and it does not make me herx. The 3000mg powder form is what made me herx. I was very agitated too. I posted not long ago about it.

Yeah, I herxed on a joint supplement! I found out it is used to treat fungus like ringworm and kills bacteria. I was connected with another person who has lyme that has taken this supplement for years and herxed from it - but it has not cured her so obviously it is not that effective considering the cost which is astronomical. I think we have to use everything that works for us - and is not dangerous. I used huge amounts of vitamin C but I didn't think it helped me. I will look back at my notes to see if I thought I was getting worse as I often confuse herxing with relapsing.

Tnks Cajungrl, maybe I better cut my dosage way back. I also feel very agitated but, thought it was just part of my "lyme induced anxiety". Guess we're all searching for that"miracle cure" LOL

Herxed on both Samento and Vitamin C. Cannot take any sort of Vitamin C (other than my RDA through juices) without it causing massive and immediate IBS (reminiscent of when I contracted an amoeba overseas with the job).  BTW, speaking of the job and being overseas, I have previously forgotten to mention two separate nasty staph infections I had in 2005.  That should have been a clue for me right there that there was something seriously wrong with my immune system.  And I know many are suspicious about abx, but I can tell you unequivocably that Avelox saved the day for me, and maybe even my life.  Keflex did nothing for my staph, and it spiraled out of control.  Not sure if Avelox has ever been used or considered in the treatment of Lyme, but I will be forever indebted to the physician at the urgent care facility who decided to prescribe it, wherever he may be these days.
