I was locked up in the nuthut for 2 weeks last summer due to panic/depression due to lyme infection/potential co-infection. I just couldn't control myself mentally for a good 3 months when i was initially showing these symptoms. I never knew what hell was until I went through that.
I am more stable on paxil and klonopin now. Hopefully the llmd can get him squared away. I just started seeing a llmd last weds so I am hoping I can get some semblence of normalcy back again as well. If his behavior is out of control, it might be worth treating him psychiatrically until his lyme infection can be cleared up better. the anti-depressants, etc won't make him feel all the way better, but it will give him a better grip on things until the llmd can get the infection under control. Good luck.
