So what now?

I'm just flip flopping sypmtoms....my eye pressure/horrible headaches and extreme fatigure are back. I've been on biaxin for 2 weeks now? I was on zithromax and that seemed to keep me pretty ok and get rid of this eye pressure and stuff...but i still had some flair ups. Now i have the horrible eye pressure..horrible headache and extreme fatigue and horrible body aches/chills w/e u wanta call them. What do i do now?? Call my dr. and switch back...So far its just magnified everyday. I got to be able to work. And at teh rate im going im not going to be able to soon. I feel horrible. All my old symptoms are back. This isn't herxing. I can tell the difference....im on 1000mg of biaxin a day. What do i do from here?

Call your doc. Sounds like the Biaxin isn't working for you. Different drugs work for different folks. Hang in there.

I am sorry you are having such a tough time. I hope you get relief real soon. How do you tell the difference between herxing and a poor reaction to meds? I think I had a reaction recently and not a herx but I am not sure.
Thanks!

Well after all this experience off and on meds...you start to get a feel. I was off and on zithromax a few times. . . and 2 days after i stopped i began to feel worse. Herxing is just basically when my symptoms "flared up"...but then i began to feel relief and it went away. I started this med feeling crappy....and its just gotten worse to the point of i feel just as bad as i did before i started any medicine. Like i said, its hard to tell. But just get use to your body and what its telling you. I know that sounds cliche. But you'll be able to identify herxing/or reactions/ or w/e. Best of luck with you and your treatment. Keep me posted on how ya feel!
