Just an update for future readers of this thread. I have now been on minocycline for 3 months (I did have to spend three weeks working up to the full dose) but the head stuff all got better for me. I went through a ton of mental issues when Gordy starting minocycline- the dizziness was just the beginning. After talking to my lyme doc I do feel it was a herx though because i can now think clearer than i did before. I started teaching in September again and it was a little rough in the beginning but now I feel I can multitask better than I have the last two school years. I feel way more on top of things. I really think the little lyme b*stards were congregating in my brain because as I said above I went through every mental symptom you ca think of- dizziness/off balance, raving thoughts, insomnia, depression, anxiety, inability to think/make words. I have also had back pain thr entire time I've been on minocycline for what thats worth. Right now I slur my words at time (which sucks when you are teaching a class full of high schoolers 😑 ) but I think that's because I am still on the minocycline and my doc added cefuroxime to the mix. Just wanted an accurate record of this drug out there for future reference.
