Since starting treatment, MY DEPRESSION HAS LIFTED! I don't FEEL better physically, but I'm not going to bed at night thinking of how to get my hands on a gun to blow my head off...and I'm not crying the days away!
I was doing very bad (depression-wise) since this last flare up of symptoms. Maybe it subsided on its own, but also Biaxin and Flagyl could be factors!

Current treatment (began June 10th 2009):
Biaxin 1000mg/day, Pulsing Flagyl 500mg/day 1 Week Every Month

Great news, Jendays! So, maybe, just maybe -- as in my response to your other post -- if the PICC is too expensive and drastic for you right now, maybe you should hold off on it a little while. Maybe you are going to get a great response from what you are on now?!! I sure would take this as a good sign!
Lyme in NC in 1971? Suspect TBI: Fully engorged tick followed by high fever and tonsillitis. Follwed by , lumps on neck,  chronic tonsillits w/ constant low grade to recurring high (104) fevers, severe unexplained neck stiffness and acute neck pain.   Followed by tonsillectomy, urinary tract infections, miscarriage, appendicitis while pregant, chronic severe back pain. Followed by depression, mild anxiety, mitral valve prolapse, and hypglycemia.  Was this a TBI??

I read somewhere biaxin is also sometimes used to treat depression. Although it triggers it too!

Good for you. Enjoy this "side effect" even if you don't notice a reprieve from symptoms, at least you feel better about this. And that is AWESOME.

Actually - depression is on the symptoms list at my doctor's office. SO, you may very well have been getting somewhere.

I'm glad to hear that your depression is better. It is easier to deal with symptoms when you don't feel so darn depressed. I hope that your symptoms get better soon.
