Has anyone ever made the above connection? My son and I both have been taking Zith/Rifampin for about 4 months and we've both had horrible insomnia. Today, his doctor said to stop the Zith for a few days to see if that helps. (He has been taking both antibiotics at dinnertime). I know there are other reasons for my insomnia (hypothyroid, perimenopause) but it's disturbing when your 9-year old can't sleep. Has anyone experienced insomnia they know is a result of antibiotic treatment? How long does it take to return to a normal sleeping pattern?
We've tried Benadryl (wipes him out the next day), homeopathic aids... right now he's in an epsom salt bath. Any other suggestions?
