Three weeks in. I started on the 125 every third day, and now three weeks in and I am taking 375. Yesterday I took 500, a bit earlier than reccomended but I am 190lbs so my doctor said it was fine as I wasn't getting a big herx.
Going to move to 375 for the next week cause the herx sucks.
There is definitely something going on. I am starting to get very tired, eyes feel like they are squeezing currently, but there is something that I can't explain. It's like I could see when this dies down from the herx that I can be myself again.
I am not going to really comment until I am 1.5-2 months in which is where everyone says they have seen huge changes, but depends on how long I am on as theres that battle currently going on between herxing and symptoms being lifted lol. But there is something I feel that will come of this, and that being living life again and going back to work.
I was taking mirtazapene 30MG to sleep and now I have cut it down to 6.5. Still groggy sleep but sleep nonetheless. Slowly weaning myself off.
Will keep all updated but for all wondering, I wasn't herxing, I have now increased my dose and am getting mostly head pressure and all herxes, with not pain in my joints but this weird sensations in my hands and feet.
God bless. I will be back in a few weeks.
Please do take care. Many patients are finding that dosing beyond the 250mg threshold is leading to a lot more problematic issues. So being conservative and careful is quite advisable imo. The Dr Kinderlehrer interview is highly instructive on this score. As always, the mantra of listen to your body, and only dose as tolerated is usually a very good framework to follow. Ie, don't let the responses (flares, but also potential side effects) get out of hand, don't push beyond your body's capacity (which is always a good rule of thumb when treating for these infections). Issues can usually be hedged by lowering the dose or taking a break from the agent if things are beginning to get out of hand.
Wishing you good luck!!! this is a great agent imo, what I call fire, a gift, but must be used with great care and caution. We must treat it with utmost respect.
