I am so sorry to hear that you are suffering so much. (((Hugs!)))
I consumed 6 bottles of Mepron (each bottle 600 ML) from February 1,2016 through May 2016. The whole time I was on Mepron, I suffered from severe depression. The type of depression where you literally feel like you lost your soul. I felt so empty inside and very suicidal. Not even the love and support of my husband could help me. I cried so much, and there were days that I was too sad to cry.
When I found out that I was positive for Lyme; my doctor had me start Doxycycline, it was like a bomb of What the Hell is this went off in my body. I had severe chronic fatigue. The type where you have to debate in your head"How bad you have to go to the bathroom." Because this means that you have to use your nonexistent energy to get out of bed. This is also when I started to stutter and the last time that I was able to drive my car. My brain wasn't functioning at all. I had times of repeating the same word out loud over and over again. I was unable to stop.
I stuttered daily on every word. The losing my ability to talk would happen once a month. It never mattered what type of Antibiotic combination I was on. It would last 2 to 8 days in a row , where I couldn't form a word. I could get sounds out example: "muh", "uh", and hum to music, just couldn't form words.
I have read that the Lyme bacteria come into your bloodstream every 4 to 6 weeks. So this could be the reason why once a month I would lose my ability to talk.
I went 1 year of stuttering daily; except the days that I couldn't talk. This got better May 2016, when I started to increase A-Inflam. A-Inflam is to get the inflammation down in your body. I now talk normal and don't stutter at all! I have read other people's posts and some are taking Japanese Knotweed for inflammation. You might want to look further into taking something for inflammation, if you are not already doing so.
I can relate to a lot of your symptoms. I have dealt with these also through treatment.
June 2016, I stopped all Antibiotic treatment due to severe symptoms. I feel like my body doesn't properly detox. I don't know if it's from my gene mutation (MTHFR Homozygous a1298c), or if something else like metals, mold, parasites, or the fact that I was misdiagnosed for 27 years. Something is in the way of me healing from Lyme , Babesia, Bartonella, and Candida.
In June, I started Byron White: Detox1. This is a herbal formula. I am taking 10 drops a day.
July 2016, I started Byron White: A-P. This is for parasites. I noticed the end of July, after my daily sauna, my sweat smelled terrible!! My husband said that I smelled like an old moldy, wet shoe. A couple of days later, I had to get out of the sauna before my time was done, because my sweat smelled like a bunch of cats urinated all over in my sauna. The smell of Ammonia was so strong that my eyes and nose were watering and burning!! I had to stop the sauna because all I was doing is re-inhaling the Ammonia.
So, to this day, I am still Not taking antibiotics. I still take A-BAB; Byron White formula for Babesia, still stuck at 6 drops total a day. A-INFLAM , for inflammation 40 drops a day. Detox1, 10 drops a day. A-P 40 drops a day. Detox 2, going to start soon. Supplements, vitamins, thyroid medication, Nystatin, and Diflucan (Fluconazole).
My next step is to start Detox2. I am also looking into the pharmaceutical protocol for parasites.

I found the article very interesting!
Are you doing anything for detox? A lot of people here, including myself, detox daily and use multiple ways. There is a lot of great ideas about
detoxing in the "New to Lyme?....Start Here!" thread located at the top of this forum. Here is another great link: www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html
Personally, I still detox daily and use multiple ways, even though it doesn't seem to help with my symptoms, I still keep trying!!
Ha ha ha! My "Alzheimer's" symptoms are horrible lately. It took me 5 hours to write this response down on paper and then to post it here. So please forgive me if I didn't answer your question. Please feel free to ask more if I can help you.
You might want to consider backing down the dose of Mepron, to give your body a break and then in a couple of days, try to increase it again. I had to decrease Mepron a couple of times. Please look into more ways of detoxing. This could also be helpful for you. You might want to also call your LLMD and let them know about
your symptoms since starting Mepron.
Lyme disease is a giant puzzle. I am missing pieces of my puzzle, but still searching for answers!
