When dealing with anxiety, you need to look at the whole picture. There is a lot adding up to it. Rx anxiety meds cover up these symptoms through different means, but there are natural alternatives with less side effects.
Although the cause of anxiety may be from these bugs and toxicity caused from killing them, further eradication WONT make your anxiety any better in the immediate short term, but should in the long term when they are under control.
These infections can alter the endocrine system (adrenals,thyroid, and blood sugar) which can further raise havoc on an otherwise calm brain. This system should be looked at individually (all three) in all individuals experiencing anxiety with lyme. I will not go into details on this post though, since that's not what you asked.
You asked for immediate relief, which is still a band aid, but at least a natural one:
Anxiety attack short term relief in 5 minutes: B3 Niacin, get the type that causes facial flushing, goggle it.
More gradual / hour later relief with less drowsiness: Lithium Orotate 5mg, Holy Basil capsules
More gradual / hour later , but possible tiredness: 5 HTP, GABA, Magnessium glycinate or mag calm powder.
Worth mentioning, not as powerful unless high doses, then tiredness will result: valerian root (natures real Valum), passion flower.
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again w/with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in 2015. Rebuilding / repairing / fine tuning since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club". What an adventure this has been. Did I mention Hashimoto sucks?
