Well I have been trying roxithromycin for some days now and it seems to cause even worse anxiety than clarithromycin though I have been taking minimal doses. So I guess it might cross the bbb better than clarithromycin. The problem is, this anxiety is just too much to take and I think I wont be able...

When I tried it the 1st time with 500 mg I got pretty bad CNS symptoms (a herx maybe) so now I'm trying to do it more carefully.
Which symptoms did you have exactly then?

?
Baaaad anxiety. But I'm having it now again, though I upped the dose to only 250 mg. I must be very sensitive.

Re: Burning pain

Oh and another thing, isnt that drug somehow related to quinolones? I have had serious problems with them.

Re: Burning pain

Yes I have heard about that but even getting this clarithromycin prescription was difficult because I dont have "official" Lyme diagnosis... and isnt that drug a bit risky too? Some have gotten eye damage etc?

Do you take the clarithromycin in combination with hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil)? Since 11 days I take each day: 2 times clarithromycin 500 mg + hydroxychloroquine 2...
