Has anyone on here taken Doxepin or Neurontin? My Lyme Dr. prescribed these to help with pain and sleeping. I started these a few weeks back and have been experiencing more anxiety/depression then I have maybe ever. I also have started taking Malarone for Babesia with Omnicef for Lyme and am wondering if the anxiety/depression is a herx response. I'm gonna put a call in tomorrow to my Dr., but in the meantime, does anyone have experience with Doxepin or Neurontin?
Who could have lyme and not be depressed? It is common and could be a herx symptom. Not familiar with your meds. Someone will come along shortly with meds info.
Insomnia is common in lyme and some of the other Co's. I take ambien CR. I've tried almost every other one and nothing helps. Ambien takes hours to get me to sleep and its not a sound sleep. But I need any I can get. I do not worry about being addicted to ambien. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
Prayers....Marsha (also feeling pretty depressed at the moment)
