I'd like to counter the 'just plow through it' thought - Mino and that attitude is how I ended up with seizure and being labeled as an abx failure since I couldn't continue due to the symptoms severity with all Neuro symptoms. I stuttered so badly that there wasn't hardly any point to trying to talk, no working memory (literally), randomly fainting, severe POTS so that I fainted almost every single time I stood up, being bed bound and more.
As with all things, it's in moderation. If your body can detox well enough to handle using this medication you will not have severe symptoms, but no doctor - or anyone else - should encourage people to push through severe herxing. Herxing is when your body is so full of toxins that it can no longer function properly - or we wouldn't have those symptoms. So pushing through a minor herx is very different than pushing through a major herx. I tried to push through major herxing for many months - and experienced a horrendous set back of many years.
